Mourinho’s scathing attack on Chelsea World Cup keeper

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has launched a scathing attack on Willy Caballero.

Mourinho, who is working as a World Cup pundit in Russia this summer, was asked for his analysis on Argentina’s 1-1 draw with Iceland on Saturday afternoon.

La Albiceleste, who missed a penalty through Lionel Messi, were disappointing against a “compact” and resolute Iceland.

Iceland had two shots on target throughout, with Alfred Finnbogason equalising four minutes after Sergio Aguero’s opener and Mourinho was highly critical of Caballero, who palmed out a shot into the path of Finnbogason.

“One chance, one goal, Caballero in goal or myself would be the same because I would save the same as Caballero,” he told Russia Today.

“There was not one single dangerous situation.

“The word that comes to my mind to describe your match is ‘compact.’ That was the whole game, and in the end they even defended with nine men in the area, in addition to the goalkeeper. Never was a player alone against Messi or another of Argentina’s talents.

“It was clear that the children eat meat there, they are all very strong, and they also had a chance to score and scored, and of course, no one can blame Iceland for having played like that.”
