The Etihad outfit are currently on top of the table, while the Old Trafford side are on eighth position.
Jose Mourinho revealed that he is still mad about Sergio Aguero‘s antics which led to Marouane Fellaini’s sending off in a Manchester Derby, 18 months ago. The Manchester United boss clearly expressed his displeasure about the incident while speaking to the media in a recent interview ahead of today’s derby.
The Manchester City forward made a big fuss about his clash with Fellaini and successfully convinced the referee Martin Atkinson to show United’s number #27 a straight red. Mourinho was not convinced about the sent off back then too, as he said,
“If Sergio doesn’t go to the floor for sure it’s not a red card.” in the post-match conference.
Ahead of today’s derby, the Portuguese spoke to media and it seemed that the United gaffer has still not forgotten that incident.
“There are little things in his game that I am not a big fan. I keep (the reasons) for me. I admire him because of his fantastic qualities. Clearly, the numbers speak for themselves. He is a goalscorer all over the world. It is not about scoring for one season, it is about scoring goals in your career.”
“Martin Atkinson told me in his opinion it’s a red card but I saw Aguero in the tunnel but no broken head, no broken nose, his face is nice as always,” said Mourinho on Aguero.
Manchester City sit on top of the Premier League table with 29 points from a mere 11 games. The Etihad based side is yet to see a defeat this season. On the other hand, Manchester United are far from their best and are at 8th place with 20 points.
