Leeds legend Giles blasts Mourinho in Pep comparison: Whingeing moaner

Leeds United legend Johnny Giles has taken a swipe at Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

Giles wrote for the Irish Independent: "With every passing week, Pep Guardiola's halo gains definition and Jose Mourinho's horns grow longer and sharper.

"Everyone can see who the special one is in the Premier League. There is very little that can be predicted with any certainty in football, but I would bet my life savings on Mourinho having a proper whinge when fate is not flowing in his direction.

"This is not a man blessed with grace under pressure. He is hard-wired to believe that football exists for his glory and if he cannot have the limelight for the right reasons, he craves it so much that he will do everything to hold it for the wrong reasons.

"He's been in full-on moan mode for weeks and even by his standards, he's sounding particularly petulant while he thrashes around looking for anything to downgrade Guardiola's progress to something other than the proper application of football knowledge by a gifted coach."
