Manchester United fans were certainly not pleased with Jose Mourinho’s tactics and decision making vs Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley.
The Portuguese manager lost to his former team with Antonio Conte’s men scraping by with a 1-0 result after Eden Hazard scored from the penalty spot.
Other frustrating decisions for the fans includes his substitutions as well as tactical decisions such as the team’s shape and how he set them up against the Blues.
United simply failed to prove any kind of clinical nature on the day and paid for it by missing out on the only trophy left that available for them to win this season.
A season without a trophy for United and Mourinho. Surprised so many United fans still insisting he represents a bright future. I think they deserve better than this. A lot better.

Conte out Mourinho'd Mourinho and José had no answer to it. Awful match, dreadful tactics all round

Cannot bear Mourinho at times. Moaning at Chelsea's tactics is pathetic considering they're how he usually plays, and how United played to win the EL last season, a trophy that saved his first season from being a total disaster.

Jose Mourinho spent 60 million on Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof only to start the chuckle brothers in a cup final

Mourinho saying Chelsea played pretty much as negatively as they usually do/he expected and yet his initial team selection was mostly focused on stopping them… wake me up when he’s gone pls

Jose faces a lot of criticism due to his style of play though that is often justified by results so when things don’t go his way it’s made worse by how his tactics play out.
No one likes to lose but it’s made worse when the team don’t play well either with the Red Devils’ fan base split in blaming the former Real Madrid manager or blaming the players.
