Alan Pardew: There is beauty at both ends

West Bromwich Albion manager Alan Pardew believes his Manchester United counterpart Jose Mourinho has been unfairly criticized, saying that no one, including Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, was better than the Portuguese at winning trophies. He has played in a couple of matches since, with Mourinho revealing the player has been receiving some conservative treatment, but with that not having the desired effect, it looks as though surgery might be the last option.

The pair are understood to have fallen out with Mourinho and are set to be offloaded in January.

"It was hard but it was good for my development as a manager too which is something that I always try to do".

The 29-year-old defender was an integral part of the United team over the years but was allowed to leave the Red Devils to complete a switch to The Hawthorns in 2015.

The full song goes like this: "Park the bus park the bus Man United, park the bus park the bus I pray, park the bus park the bus Man United, playing football the Mourinho way".

Southampton product Shaw, 22, made only his fourth appearances this season in the win against Bournemouth for a measly total of just eight games in 2017 after signing a four-year contract in 2014.

In recent times it was thought Henrikh Mkhitaryan was the latest victim to join the scrapheap of used and abused 10s.

"It is a strategy they have", the Manchester United manager said.

While Mourinho would expect Mkhitaryan, at 28, to be producing the best football of his career, Shaw has the time to learn and cement his place as United's long-term left-back.

Jose Mourinho appeared to accuse rivals Manchester City of gamesmanship prior to the clash at Old Trafford, which the Citizens won 2-1 to move further clear at the top.
