Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is known to launch some subtle jibes at his opponents via the media.
This week, the Portuguese coach reminded Liverpool fans of their team’s recent fumble in the Champions League.
Last week, Jurgen Klopp’s men took on Sevilla in a clash that could have sent the Reds into the last 16 of the competition.
The team stormed to a 3-0 lead inside the first 30 minutes, but in the second half they crumbled as their Spanish opponents nabbed a 3-3 draw.
On Tuesday night, United took on Watford at Vicarage Road in the Premier League and they found themselves in a similar predicament.
The Red Devils took a thee-goal lead and inside the final 20 minutes, nerves jangled as the Hornets pulled two goals back to make it 3-2.
Before the final whistle, though, Jesse Lingard wrapped up victory for the visitors with an impressive goal.
After the match, Mourinho carried out his post-match media duties and aimed a subtle swipe at Liverpool’s recent result in Europe.
The Liverpool Echo quotes the manager as saying:
“Watford gave us a couple of minutes where they felt anything could happen. This is football. Last week, Borussia Dortmund-Schalke, 4-0, 4-4. A couple of weeks ago, Liverpool (at Sevilla), 3-0, 3-3. That’s football.”
