Chris Sutton, former Chelsea striker, has called out Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, due to his side’s defeat to Derby County in the Carabao Cup match played on Tuesday night.
County goalkeeper, Scott Carson, saved Phil Jones’s penalty to see his team earn a place in the fourth round, having won 8-7 at spot kicks after 2-2 draw at full time.
However, Sutton, believes that Mourinho should be blamed for the defeat and not the players after the Red Devils were dumped from the competition by Frank Lampard’s men.
Recall that Mourinho had named Phil Jones and Eric Bailly as the cause of his side’s penalty shootout loss to County.
“I don’t like Mourinho unburdening the blame on the players,” Sutton told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“He is the manager. He needs to step up and take responsibility.”
Mourinho’s men will take on West Ham in their next game on Saturday in the Premier League.
