Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is jealous of the success Antonio Conte has had at his former club Chelsea, says pundit Tony Gale.

I think he feels a little bit jealous of Conte and what he’s achieved at Chelsea,” Gale said on Sky Sports. “He shouldn’t be because he achieved so much himself.

It kind of takes the little edge and pressure off of what’s happening at Manchester United, that probably isn’t good enough.

The football they’re playing isn’t quite good enough at the moment.”

In that statement alone, Gale has proven why he shouldn’t be taken seriously as a pundit.

Obviously calling on his years of managerial experience from his time as caretaker manager of Walton Casuals and his international playing career during which he won ONE England under-21 cap, the former dopey defender at giants such as Fulham, West Ham United, Blackburn Rovers, Crystal Palace and Maidenhead United has decided that the green mist has descended over Mourinho thanks to Antonio Conte managing to win the Premier League, despite not having the extra opportunities to play games in Europe, in his first season.

Even though Mourinho only won a paltry THREE trophies in his first season at United, including that one in Europe of course, the feat is decidedly overrated when compared with the ONE trophy that the Italian won.

Over their respective careers Mourinho has even more to be jealous about as he has only won twenty five trophies compared with Conte’s seven.

Finally on this subject and with regards to Gale’s final remark about United’s football not being “quite good enough”, we have to agree. It isn’t quite good enough to catch Manchester City but it is certainly good enough to be ahead of Chelsea in the Premier League. Look at the table Tony!

(And we thought the ability to make idiotic statements was only a requirement if you wanted to be a presenter or reporter on Sky!)

Alexis Sánchez

Meanwhile, Alexis Sánchez has missed a trick! He was in a position to make history but he has now blown it!

Picture the scene if you will. It’s 0-0 in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg against Chelsea. Sánchez is called from the bench and goes on to score the winner as Arsenal beat Chelsea 1-0 and the second leg at The Emirates is drawn.

Alexis then grabs his dogs and hot foots it up to Manchester into the waiting arms of Pep Guardiola and new bff Kevin De Bruyne.

In what seems like no time at all he comes on as a substitute for City in the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final with Bristol City, which City are losing 2-1, meaning that the aggregate score is 3-3. He only goes and scores the winner which takes his new team to a final against his old team at Tottenham Hotspur’s new ground, which is shortly to become Tottenham Hotspur’s old ground.

Where’s the history-making in that, you may ask? Well, if the previous scenario had actually happened which unfortunately, due to little Alexis not receiving the memo, it didn’t, he would have become the only player in history, (or at least to our knowledge anyway), to have scored the winning goal in both semi-finals of the same cup competition.

Imagine if he then went on to score a goal for City and an own goal for Arsenal in the final. What a season it would have been for him!

There, that’s what we call real news! Well, it would have been if only the Chilean had stuck to the script against Chelsea.

Naby Keïta

Liverpool have been told by RB Leipzig that they are welcome to take Naby Keïta to Anfield five months early should they so wish, they just have to cough up an extra £13 million to do so.

This is according to the Daily Mirror so it must be true. (While you’re there check out their headline photo, it has the OLD Manchester City badge on it! Now that’s what we call a modern newspaper!)

If their preference, however, is to pay £18 million extra then they need look no further for confirmation than the Guardian for that is the precise amount Leipzig want according to Ed Aarons in that publication!

Sky Sports News reckon the figure was £15 million but it’s all irrelevant anyway as Leipzig’s manager has stated that the player is going nowhere, not even Liverpool, until he is supposed to.

Anyway it’s all obviously irrefutable proof, if any were needed, that they should have kept the Coutinho deal quiet and not told anybody. Now the whole world knows they have money!

Chicharito

And finally, David Moyes has decided he doesn’t need a prolific goalscorer upfront and has decided to sell Javier Hernandez.

This despite West Ham’s recent main sources of goals being just Marko Arnautovic and the injury-prone Andy Carroll, who may also be moved on.

We questioned the decision by West Ham to appoint David Moyes and a few decent results haven’t changed our opinion. He is a serial failure and will revert to type in the not-too-distant future. You have been warned, you hammerheads!
