Mourinho Slams Players For Early Goal


Jose Mourinho was upset with his players’ concentration and said that they “were playing a summer friendly” as they conceded after just two minutes.

Jose Mourinho was critical of his players’ commitment, effort and concentration as Manchester United lost 2-1 away to Fenerbahce in the Europa League.

“Our problems started in our global attitude. They were playing the Champions League final, we were playing a summer friendly,” he said.

“They deserved to win, football is not just about quality, it is also about effort, commitments, playing the limits and giving everything.

“A team that concedes after two minutes is a team that is not ready, not mentally prepared, not focused, not concentrated”.

Fenerbahce scored with a stunning overhead kick from Moussa Sow in the second minute of the game before Jeremain Lens doubled the Turkish side’s lead in the second half.

Wayne Rooney pulled one back with a brilliant strike of his own late on but it was another poor performance from United and Mourinho made his feelings clear after the match
