Man Utd Boss Jose Mourinho Slams Raheem Sterling After England World Cup Exit

Manchester United Coach Jose Mourinho has slammed Raheem Sterling for his World Cup performances after England finished fourth in Russia.

Sterling has been frequently critised at the World Cup for struggling in front of goal.

The Manchester City Star has scored just twice for England in 44 gmaes, his last was in October 2015.

And Jose Mourinho thinks other players should have been given the chance, on their run to the semi-finals.

Mourinho speaking as a pundit for Russia Today said: “He didn't have a good enough World Cup to be chosen fora match ahead of [Jamie] Vardy, [Danny] Welbeck, [Marcus] Rashford – people with probably better condition from a physical and psychological point of view.”

Mourinho's comments come just after England lost 2-0 to Belgium on Saturday.

Sterling was tasked with breaking lines for Southgate and being the middle man to link Harry Kane with the midfield.

He was the player to drop deep to collect the ball and also the player to go long when England’s midfield was outnumbered.

But he failed to get on the scoresheet in six appearances.

He had 10 attempts, six of which were blocked and only got one on target.

And the United Boss also thought Gareth Southgate made a mistake for not giving Jack Butland or Nick Pope a chance in the playoff.

He added: “I think also for a second goalkeeper to feel I didn't even play in the third match of the group phase, I'm not playing in the third vs fourth match, when can I play.

“I think it's quite frustrating for a guy like Butland or Pope.”
