Jose Mourinho before West Brom: ‘Man United are disrespected’

Jose Mourinho: ‘Man United are disrespected’

The Sunday papers have published fresh quotes from Man United manager Jose Mourinho.

A master of spin, Mourinho has argued that Man United have been disrespected this season.

The Red Devils stand a chance at winning the FA Cup this season. They face Tottenham in the semifinals.

United are also on course to finish as the runners-up to Man City in the Premier League.

Yet, Mourinho doesn’t believe his side get the respect they deserve:

We don’t always get the respect we deserve,” he said. “When we don’t play well people have a go at us, which I understand. I never complained, for example, about the criticism we got after the second match against Sevilla. If you don’t play well you can’t expect praise.

Yet even when we do play well there is always a ‘but’. It seems really hard for people to praise the team and to praise the boys. This is a team that has showed character many times. A team that came from 2-0 down to win its last match.

We already have more points than we finished on last season and we have beaten everyone else in the league. I would like people to be a little more honest when we do something positive. If people tell the truth when we play bad they should do the same when we get things right.

Manchester United vs West Brom

Manchester United prevented the ultimate humiliation of watching their most bitter rivals lift the title last week as they produced an incredible comeback to claim all three points.

Pogba’s brace and Chris Smalling’s winner 20 minutes from time cancelled out City’s two first-half goals in one of the most thrilling games of the 2017/18 season.

Although they remain 13 points off of Pep Guardiola’s side, Jose Mourinho will be keen to now wrap up second place with the focus now on gearing up for next Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final.

The Baggies are now near enough consigned to their fate – the Championship.

Rock bottom of the Premier League, ten points away from safety and just five games remaining their task is near impossible.

Caretaker manager Darren Moore took charge of his first game at West Brom last Saturday, earning a point at home to Swansea.
