“No parked buses at Playstation” – Gaming giants respond to Mourinho’s ‘Playstation football’ criticism

“No parked buses at Playstation” – Gaming giants respond to Mourinho’s ‘Playstation football’ criticism

The official PlayStation account has trolled Jose Mourinho following the Manchester United manager’s comments last night.

After witnessing his side beat Basel 3-0 in the Champions League at Old Trafford, Mourinho remarked that his side were playing “PlayStation football”, with an excessive amount of flicks and tricks.

As reported by BBC Sport, Mourinho said: “We could have put ourselves in trouble.

“We were playing fantasy football, Playstation football. I don’t like it – flicks and tricks.

“We gambled and you have to respect your opponent. I don’t know if goal difference will play a part.

“We lost position, our shape, we lost balls in easy situations. I didn’t like it – the players relaxed too much.”

The PlayStation account couldn’t resist the opportunity to taunt Mourinho, stating that there are “no parked buses at PlayStation”.

A goal from substitute Marouane Fellaini set United on their way to victory over Basel, with Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford also managing to get on the scoresheet.

United are back in Premier League action on Sunday when they host Everton.
