Cape Town - Denmark head coach Morten Olsen has lashed out at Jose Mourinho,
claiming the Chelsea manager's negative tactics are killing football.
Mourinho has come under fire in recent weeks after preferring to adopt defensive
approaches. His latest mindset in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Liverpool at
Anfield has caused the most controversy, with Liverpool Boss accusing Mourinho of parking two buses.
According to soccerway.com, Olsen has now joined the chorus of critics in an interview with Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet.
"In my world Mourinho is a danger for football. If many try to copy his
style, then the game will die," said the 64-year-old.
"Imagine if everybody played football like Mourinho. Then it would certainly be boring, and then I wouldn't watch the matches.
"I would prefer to pick a good film or go for a stroll in the forest."
Olsen, who has been in charge of the Danish national team since 2000,
added: "I could play so differently with Chelsea, if I got the chance.
"But Mourinho is only able to play defensively. The club has spent so much money on so good players. Hell, use them then!"
Even Chelsea star Eden Hazard voiced his disapproval with Mourinho's
tactics, claiming the team 'were not made to play football' following
the club's loss to Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League.
And the former Ajax coach defended the Belgian international's comments.
"Of course it is okay to be calculating," he said. "Now and then I also
like to have the opportunity to play on the counter but there has to be
a plan for how you play when you go on the attack.
"He solely relies on set pieces, and then he hopes
that Hazard or Willian can do something on their own. I certainly
understand why Hazard criticized the way Chelsea played after the game."Mourinho, who is trophy-less with Chelsea this season, has one game left against relegated Cardiff City, and will be hoping to finish the campaign on a more positive note.
