Jose Mourinho has not lost faith in his managerial qualities after Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions. By losing lots of balls with turnings, flicks and tricks, the midfield players and central defenders are at risk: one late challenge, and they are out. They only lost two games.
City captain Vincent Kompany, speaking after the result, indicated he spoke with the same voice as manager Pep Guardiola, who can now lay claim to 24 trophies in a nine-year coaching career which includes triumphant spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
"After beating Manchester City we wanted a winning spirit until the end of the season but today was one of those days".
"I don't think we deserved to lose but we gave them the opportunity to win the match by being solid in defence and smelling a chance in a set-play which they did", the Portuguese tactician added.
"They won the title because they are the best team. Eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues", he said.
A first-half yellow card contributed to Mourinho's decision, but the France global had struggled to find the form that saw him score twice in the 3-2 victory at Manchester City.Читайте также: Meghan Markle flies to U.S. to finalize United Kingdom visa application
Mourinho and United won't accept another season like this, and a busy transfer window seems inevitable.
"When we have the ball, we want to run with the ball, we want to dribble, and everything was complicated and probably in our best period where we were moving the ball better and the team was thinking faster and the team had more width was when they scored".
"It's fantastic. The first time you win it, you think you'll win all of them".
'We were deservedly punished, ' Mourinho said. "This is not a dynasty, it is one title we've won".
United were on a high after the dramatic comeback win against City in the Manchester derby but suffered a frustrating afternoon against the relegation-threatened Baggies. It is the way they play, is the only way I can select players.
According to Miguel Delaney, writing in The Independent, Mourinho is preparing to swing the axe in the summer and oversee a clear-out of the United squad.
Any chances of the Blues getting into the Champions League next season is still pretty thin, with Antonio Conte's side still seven points behind Spurs and ten behind Liverpool, but with a game in hand.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
