The Only Problem I Have With Smalling Is His Hair – Jose Mourhino

Published

Manchester United’s Manager Jose Mourinho Has Revealed the Problem he has with English Defender Chris Smalling.

The England international centre-back scored a brilliant goal in the 2-1 win over Watford, to end the host’s 100% start to the league.

Jose Mourinho has said he does not like Chris Smalling’s hair, despite his goal handing Manchester United a 2-1 win at Watford on Saturday.

Smalling was also a good match for Deeney, keeping the Watford attacker from performing at top form.

“He was good, the only thing I don’t like from Chris at this moment is his haircut, but I am nobody to tell him that,” Mourinho joked in his post-match news conference.

 

“But he’s playing really well, also Victor [Lindelof]. And I repeat, Marouane [Fellaini] is really important for them in two difficult matches, matches of two-against-two, because Burnley and Watford play two strikers, two powerful strikers.

“They can hold the ball, they can make runs, they are good in the air, they are physical, clever, so I think these three guys [Smalling, Lindelof and Fellaini] were very important for us today again, and when a central defender can score a goal, even better.”

“We made defensive mistakes against Brighton and against Tottenham,” Mourinho said. “Against Brighton we didn’t deserve to win that match, but against Tottenham I think we did deserve to win it.

 

“But six goals and defensive mistakes, and then we go to two matches away – difficult matches, different stadiums, Burnley, Watford – and I felt that my central defenders they needed, especially in this moment of a bit of instability, they needed somebody to support and to give them the first wall; physicality.

“But Marouane is giving us more than that. He is giving us that, but he’s giving us also quality and simplicity in his football. He’s playing simple.

“He’s playing simple and well. So I’m really happy. I’m really happy with Marouane.”
