Jose Mourinho Claims Sky Sports’ Man Utd Possession Stats Are Wrong

Jose Mourinho Claims Sky Sports’ Man Utd Possession Stats Are Wrong

Jose Mourinho has claimed Sky Sports’ possession stats for the Liverpool v Manchester United game on Monday night were incorrect, and claimed United’s statistician recorded different figures.

In a classic Mourinho-esque performance, United went to Anfield and played for a 0-0 draw and got it, managing just one shot on target whilst taking the sting from Liverpool’s pacey attacks.

It was a drab, uninspiring affair, with broadcasters Sky claiming that United only had 35% possession throughout Рtheir lowest recorded since the beginning of the Premier League era.

But, in his post-match press conference, Mourinho took issue with the figures put out into the public domain, insisting the real number was 42%:

Ah, good old Jose, eh? He never misses an opportunity to cause a bit of a stir, does he?

What do you make of his claims that United were 7% better off than everyone is making out? Does it even matter, really?
