New York – Dutch coach Johan Cryuff slammed Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal and Chelsea manager José Mourinho.
In an interview with Sky Sports News, the former Barcelona legend lashed out at his fellow Dutchman Van Gaal with whom he has had some personal issues in the past.
Cruyff said the Red Devils boss does not dominate the team and is “too cautious”.
“He doesn’t dominate. I like dominating football. Manchester doesn’t play like that, [Van Gaal is to cautious]” said Cryuff.
“But results I think are second. The game is first. Money is very important but always second,” he stressed.
The Dutch coach also talked to Sky Sports about José Mourinho’s methods and criticized his “bad behavior”.
“He’s a controversial coach. What I like about him is that he’s capable of creating a good atmosphere with the players, but I don’t like that he always puts himself on first row”, he said.
The 68-year-old strongly criticized ‘The Special One’s’ conduct as setting a bad example for young football fans, adding that he should behave better.
“It’s probably because of his background, where he’s never been cheered by 100,000 people, or whistled at by 100,000 people. Maybe it’s because of that, maybe because of the interest from the press, but I don’t think he is educating children to play football or educating for life,” the Dutchman emphasized.
“[Mourinho] should behave better because he will be in the press all over the world,” he added.
