Jose Mourinho Slams Manchester United Despite UEFA Champions League Win

By Kurt Buckerfield - Sep 13, 2017 08:58 AM @KurtLaduma

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho lambasted his players after their UEFA Champions League win on Tuesday night.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see a few pictures from United's win over Basel.

Despite beating Basel with a comfortable 3-0 scoreline on Tuesday, Mourinho criticised his team's loss of concentration towards the end of the encounter, suggesting that his players had become careless in possession.

"Three points are important at home. Until 2-0 we were very stable, we played with confidence," he said, according to the Daily Star.

"After 2-0 everything changed, we stopped playing seriously and stopped making right decisions. 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."

'Ronaldo Doesn't Deserve The Ballon D'Or!'

Goals from Marouane Fellaini, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford helped United win comfortably on the night, although Paul Pogba limped off the field early in the first half with an injury.

Mou knows exactly what to expect from his team hence he's not impressed with their lack of concentration in the dying minutes of game

This man knows what is this capable of. He is expecting the players to be at the highest level because this season I wants to make a statement in Europe. The guys played well, they dominated the game in so many areas. However that said though there were lot of discrepancies especially in the second half when they allowed them to penetrate the box so often. It's always difficult to enter the United Box, a team would perhaps have +-5 entries within the United Box but yesterday there were lot of entries there and they were losing possession way to east at times
