Former Chelsea boss, Guus Hiddink, has claimed that he was was bored whilst watching the Champions League final this year, thanks to the poor tactics of United.
“I had no joy watching the Champions League final,” said Hiddink. “It was boring. There was only one team on the pitch and it was Barca. There was no real fight and it was proof that it’s very important to analyse the opponent. Barcelona played their own football, but they also knew in advance all the weaknesses of Manchester United.”
As painful as it may be to admit, he’s hit the nail on the head here.
