Southampton manager, Ronald Koeman, has criticized his Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, for being too defensive-minded and urged him to learn ‘fantastic football’ from Arsene Wenger.

Koeman’s team heaped more pressure on Mourinho last week, after they beat the Premier League defending champions 3-1 at Stamford Bridge, leaving the Blues in 16th place.

The Dutchman believes that Chelsea’s style of choosing to defend after taking the lead did not work.

“Chelsea prefer to defend when attacking is also an option,” Koeman is quoted as saying in the Sunday Mirror.

“Mourinho always chooses to defend. Even if his team goes 1-0 up, they would rather defend their lead than try to score more goals.

“Yet Arsenal can kill an opponent. That is why their victory against Manchester United was so impressive.

“Attacking-wise, they completely destroyed United. For 20 minutes, they played the most fantastic football, while Chelsea do the opposite thing.

“By defending, Chelsea give their opponent a chance to come back in the game. It was a shame that Mourinho was putting attention on the referee after we beat them.

“He wanted to have a penalty in the first half. But, in the first half at Stamford Bridge, Southampton should have had two penalties.”
