Meanwhile, Ghanaian footballer, Sulley Muntari, has come to the defense of his former manager, José Mourinho.
Mourinho has been criticised by coaches and players over the years for being too defensive-minded, but the former Inter Milan and AC Milan player has disagreed with Mourinho's critics who are blasting him over his football tactics.
Muntari has said it is the coach that calls the shots and his target is to win trophies and nothing else, so his tactics must be obeyed.
