Jose Mourinho's Brutal Assessment Of Willy Caballero After Iceland Game Was Probably True

Jose Mourinho appeared to have a sly dig at Argentina goalkeeper Willy Caballero after the 1-1 draw with Iceland on Saturday but his blunt assessment of the Chelsea shotshopper looks to have been pretty accurate after the calamity he served up last night.

The Manchester United manager has been in Russia providing punditry for RT and when talking about Argentina's first game, said he would save the same as Caballero - this coming after the former Manchester City and Malaga man parried the ball into the path for Alfreð Finnbogason for Iceland's equaliser.

"One chance, one goal, Caballero in goal or myself would be the same because I would save the same as Caballero, there was not one single dangerous situation," was Mourinho's comment.

Of course, the self-confessed 'special one' has vast experience in goal, having turned out in the 'Game4Grenfell' charity game at Loftus Road back in September.

He replaced David James in the 63rd minute and was booked for time-wasting almost straight away, before producing all sorts of hilarity in between the sticks.

Despite failing to save all five penalties that he faced in the penalty shoot-out, the 55-year old surely couldn't have done any worse than Caballero last night out.

The 36-year old, capped just four times by his country, produced one of the worst errors in World Cup history when he gifted Croatia's opener in the dismal 3-0 defeat at the Nizhny Stadium.

Ante Rebic deserves huge kudos for his excellent volley but it was given to him on a plate by Caballero, who appeared to think he was playing a game of 'heads and vods' in the park.

Who's a better a goalie - Caballero or Mourinho?

Sound off in the comments.
