Manchester United legend Gordon Hill has reacted to Louis van Gaal’s comments about the club supposedly playing boring football under Jose Mourinho.

Van Gaal surprisingly blasted Mourinho in the wake of yesterday’s derby result; and while Hill does not disagree with the essence of the comment, he says it is ironic the Dutchman feels qualified for make such criticisms given how United played during his time in charge.

“To be honest, both of them have played boring football to me. Their football has always been that way,” Hill says.

The former United winger has joined the long list of legendary Old Trafford figures who have reserved praise for City boss Pep Guardiola. “That’s a style of football I love and as a coach, I’d love to put a team out against his,” he said.
