Liverpool legend Souness: Mourinho's team not real Man Utd

Liverpool legend Graeme Souness slammed Manchester United's performance for their Europa League final win over Ajax.
It was far from a vintage performance but the men from Manchester got the job done.
During Irish station TV3's coverage of the final, Souness said: "This is Man United, one of the biggest names in world football, playing basically lower end of the Championship style football, launching everything.
"(United were) very efficient, defended very well.
"I suppose the argument would be, if you're a United supporter getting to a cup final, it doesn't really matter how you play, as long as you end up coming home with the cup.
"I think they deserved to win it tonight, they had a game plan which wasn't terribly attractive to watch, they worked and stuck to it, and it worked perfectly for them.
"They got a couple of goals against a team that had all of the ball, but did nothing with it. They, when they got their chances, put them away. But no, I come back to it, it's not the type of football that you want to see Man United play week in, week out.
"But that's unfortunately what they have been doing for most of the season. Efficient but not a great watch. They have turned up in Stockholm, and dug out a result playing the kind of football that is not Manchester United, that's my biggest beef with them.
"They don't attempt to get on the ball, and don't play enough football for me. If you're one of the big clubs in the world, which they obviously are, you have to play better football.
"They won't win the big trophies playing like that, against the better teams they won't win the big trophies. You won't win our league playing like that. They don't play enough football."

DONE DEAL: Tielemans rejects Man City for Monaco in £21m deal

RSC Anderlecht midfielder Youri Tielemans has chose to join Monaco over Manchester City.
The Belgian giant's sporting director Herman von Holsbeeck has confirmed the £21m deal, with the youngster set to undertake a medical in the principality later this week.
Tielemans has been linked with a move to some of Europe's biggest clubs since April, including City.
But the 20-year old have instead decided to join the Ligue 1 champions, which according to von Holsbeeck, has come from Tielemans desire to play regular football.
"The transfer fee will be £21m plus bonuses involved," Holdsbeeck told Belgian newspaper Nieuwsblad.
"Medical tests have been scheduled for Tuesday or Wednesday. Monaco is the ideal club for Youri.
"Youri really wanted to go to a club where the coach would love to work with him.
"Last season, he said to me: 'I won't go to Manchester where I am just another number on a list'."
