Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has lashed out at football's "Einsteins" for criticising him during the English Premier League club's run of three successive defeats.
Despite winning the first four games of his tenure, Mourinho has come under scrutiny from the media after United's slump in form with the club currently six points behind leaders Manchester City in the league. United returned to winning ways after beating third-tier side Northampton Town 3-1 in the third round of the League Cup on Wednesday. "We had a bad week. I know that the world is full of Einsteins, I know that they tried to delete 16 years of my career," Mourinho told MUTV, the club's in-house television station. "They tried to delete an unbelievable history of Manchester United Football Club and to focus on a bad week with three bad results. But that's the new football, it's full of Einsteins."
