Mourinho Is Like Mayweather, Says Ex - United Defender Gary Neville

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is similar to boxing great Floyd Mayweather Jr. with his tactics, according to United legend Gary Neville.
"[Tottenham's] Mauricio Pochettino and [Liverpool's] Jurgen Klopp have got wonderful reputations for being attacking coaches," Neville said on Sky Sports.

"But Mourinho is a little bit like Mayweather at times. Mayweather is called boring at times, where he uses defence as a weapon, let's people punch themselves out.

"Jurgen Klopp in that game a few weeks ago didn't feel he could fully go for it, because he felt, 'He's going to do me, I don't want to get done by a Mourinho masterclass'.
"And I think Tottenham lacked the belief to go for it on Saturday.

"I think he gets into [their] heads, and has them thinking, 'I can't get done on the counter-attack here, he'll do me'.
"And that's a great coach, to think he can have other coaches spoiling their tactics. So in some ways I think he does deserve more respect, his record is unbelievable."
