Rio Ferdinand slammed Jose Mourinho for his incredible celebration to Manchester Uniteds late winner against Young Boys.

Marouane Fellaini saved Uniteds blushes in the Champions League clash at Old Trafford on Tuesday night with an injury-time goal.

After seeing the Belgian slot home after a hugely frustrating evening, Mourinho picked up a crate of water bottles and slammed them to the ground.

And Ferdinand told BT Sport: All eyes on me that is.

Weve scored a goal and Manchester United have won but were here talking about Jose Mourinhos reaction.

Fellow Manchester United legend Paul Scholes added: Im hoping that reaction is anger. I hope he feels angry about the performance. It wasnt good enough.

Its always “I” with Jose… “I won this title”. Last time I looked football was a team game. The way United are playing, he looks out of date.

Mourinho reeled off his Champions League accomplishments in his post-match interview but Ferdinand was less than impressed.

None of us are saying he was bad at the former clubs but were talking about here and now, the former England defender said.

Just admit the team arent performing. Hes deflecting away from the fact theyve been playing badly.

On Manchester Uniteds overall performance against Young Boys, Ferdinand added: The finishing was woeful at times. There was no fluidity.

Its not a performance you expect from United. But theyve qualified, theyve got the job done.
