Jose Mourinho Snubs Manchester United Players In Best XI He Has Coached
Jose Mourinho has snubbed Manchester United stars in a best XI of players he has coached during his glittering managerial career.
The Tottenham Hotspur boss has revealed his all-time best XI of players he has managed and failed to name any players from his days at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese gaffer notably won the League Cup and Europa League during his spell at United and worked alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and David De Gea, among others. But they didn't earn a spot in his best side.
Cristiano Ronaldo, however, is the only star to have played for United in Mourinho's ultimate side having worked with him during his time at Real Madrid.
Mourinho's team boasts eight players from his two spells at Chelsea with four players making up the back line, including goalkeeper Petr Cech, John Terry, Ricardo Carvalho and Ashley Cole. Inter Milan right-back Javier Zanetti completes the defence.
He picked two Chelsea players in his three-man midfield in Claude Makelele and Frank Lampard along with Mesut Ozil, who worked with Mourinho at Real Madrid.
The 57-year-old selected Didier Drogba, Eden Hazard and the aforementioned Ronaldo in attack.
GK: Petr Cech
