Prospective Chelsea owner Ratcliffe a Man Utd fan - but not Mourinho

The UK's richest man Sir Jim Ratcliffe has taken aim at Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

Ratcliffe has been linked with a takeover attempt at Chelsea, but confesses he's a United fan.

He told the Telegraph: “I am a season ticket holder at Chelsea, have been for years, although I'm a Manchester United fan really.

"Or was! It's not getting any better. It's gone from bad to catastrophic. Talk about a glass-half-empty.

“If you've got the six teams competing at the top of the table – this is last season anyway – you've got three who are managed by glass-half-full guys, Klopp, Guardiola and Pochettino. They get their teams up and energised.

“And then you look at Mourinho. He's so down. He destroyed Luke Shaw last season. And then you've got Wenger who was miserable and Conte who was down.

“The guy I like is Simeone. I love him."
