Jose: The game was poor for us
Mourinho was brutally honest in his assessment of United's performance while talking to MUTV...
Had the goal come earlier, could it have been different? “The game is 90 minutes, it’s not 45, and it starts at 0-0, it doesn’t start 0-2. We paid the price [for] such a bad first half and when one player speaks about attitude or desire, I think it is saying everything.” Was it frustrating that the goals came from individual errors not amazing play? “It’s not fair to say that the mistakes were responsible for the defeat, because the mistakes were in the context of the overall performance. If we are playing amazingly well and then we lose because of an individual mistake, then we can say ‘okay we lost because of an individual mistake’. But no, since the first minute, the game was poor for us. We paid the price and I think deservedly.”
