As well as managing his country, the former defender made almost 500 appearances for Ajax and earned 42 international caps.
His son Daley, 28, spent four seasons at Old Trafford, including two under Mourinho, before returning to the Dutch giants this summer.
And as someone who knows plenty about defending, Blind Snr did not hold back in his criticism of the inconsistency and poor recruitment from The Special One.
He added: “Jose can’t even get the right formation any more.
“He has not bought the right players and the football is not based on a playing style with clarity for the players.
“For example, he is always changing his line of defenders. One match he has five at the back, then four at the back and, when I look at some matches, he is actually playing with six players in a straight line at the back when they have the ball.”
Mourinho returned to a four-man defence yesterday with Diogo Dalot, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Ashley Young shielded by Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic.
But last week against Southampton and Arsenal – as Blind alluded to – it was a back three.
Admittedly this was partly down to a lack of options thanks to injuries but that highlights once again the failures in the transfer market.
