Jose Mourinho lauded his United side as ‘a team that always finds a way to fight back’, when he spoke to the media ahead of this weekend’s Manchester derby.

“If you want to go in a positive way, [it] is easy to feel that we are not a team that gives up,”said Mourinho.
“We are a team that always finds a way to fight back. [But] we can go to the other side: why do we always concede before the opponent?
“Sometimes changing results, sometimes not, we are a team that has that collective spirit to fight back. But it is not always possible so if we keep conceding goals before the opponent, the day when we cannot come back will arrive.”
“Juventus – we conceded the goal in minute 60 or something like that, [after] we had a good start. I would even say that for the first 15-20 minutes, we were totally in control.

“We have to make sure that we grow up,”Jose continued.
“Not just in our approach, because that I think is clear that the team is growing up, but we also have to grow up in our compactness and to start matches well, which I have to say, against Juventus, it happened.”
