Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has had some harsh words for us all to laugh at, considering he’s basically talking utter nonsense for most of it.

Speaking to FourFourTwo, he had the following to say when asked who out of the Manchester teams will come out on top:

“To be completely honest, I think Man United.

“Mourinho has found the groove and he understands now what to do with his football club and the players he has brought in are slightly starting to gel and produce the football and results that we need at Man United.

“I think Pep Guardiola so far has not been a success. Yes, admittedly he inherited a difficult squad.

“[But] then you expect someone who proclaims he is a genius in football to go in and sort it out but I don’t think they will.

“If I am honest I do not think City have a chance to finish in the top four. I think they have too many problems there and too many players are unhappy.

“I think when you have such a strong person like Guardiola coming in, the changes are too big and the players are finding it difficult to apply it.”
