Former Manchester United captain, Nemanja Vidic, has blamed manager, Jose Mourinho for the Red Devils’ 3-1 defeat by Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in Sunday’s Premier League derby clash at Etihad.
Three goals from David Silva, Sergio Aguero and IIkay Gundogan ensured victory for Guardiola’s men.
Forward, Anthony Martial’s lone strike was not enough to get a point for Jose Mourinho’s side.
Vidic said the Old Trafford team that were defeated by City was Mourinho’s Manchester and not the United he used to know.
The Serbian, however, said he would love to coach United in the future.
“It’s not the Manchester we are used to watching,” Vidic told beIN Sports.
“It’s Mourinho’s Manchester and, when he came to Manchester, you have to accept that he is the manager who is going to play this kind of football.
“It is the kind of football he played at Inter, at Chelsea more or less, and (Real) Madrid maybe it was more open.
“At the end of the day, that’s Mourinho’s football.”
Vidic added: “To be honest, in the future I would like to be the manager.
“I would like to think that I know things. For me to criticise Jose Mourinho, as someone who may be in the future can become the manager, is not fair.”
The defeat to City leaves United 12 points behind the Premier League champions.
Mourinho’s side will now take on Crystal Palace in their next match on November 24.
