Eric Cantona has criticised Jose Mourinho’s regressive football insisting the Red Devils are wasting young talents.
Mourinho’s park the bus strategy hasn’t gone down well with the supporters but the gaffer seems to be less bothered in changing his playing style. One could even hear chants of “attack attack” during a game from the Stretford End of the Old Trafford.
United are lying low in the 10th place in the Premier League table and their title ambitions are already in shatters. Despite having the likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez at his disposal the former Chelsea gaffer has mostly opted a far more cautious approach this season.
Cantona who won four Premier League titles during his time at the club rues the present scenario. “It’s the way you play.
“You can lose games but you take risks. You lose against Juventus and they have 70 per cent possession of the ball at Old Trafford. Could you imagine that with Ferguson on the bench?
“I suffer and I suffer even more when I see City play so wonderfully.
“I think kids need to have an example. They need great players, great movements, creative football to identify themselves to a player or a team. And I think they are now losing a generation of young players.
“These young players identify themselves to the way City play. Can we accept that? No.”
