Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Mourinho blasted by fans for cutting interview short

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho can be unpredictable when it comes to facing the media, and he raised eyebrows with his latest interview.

The Portuguese coach spoke to the Sky Sports cameras for just 15 seconds after his team qualified for the EFL Cup final.

It was not the best performance from the Red Devils, though, as they lost 2-1 on the night and their 17-game unbeaten run in all competitions came to an end.

United failed to impose much of a threat, particularly in the first half when Tom Huddlestone netted from the penalty spot after Marcos Rojo was punished for tugging on Harry Maguire’s shirt.

After a nervy half-time break for the Red Devils, Paul Pogba drew level with a 66th-minute strike.

Hull’s new signing Oumar Niasse tried to inspire a comeback by scoring with five minutes of normal time on the clock, but it was not enough to see the Tigers through as United progressed 3-2 on aggregate.

After the game, it seemed as though Mourinho was not too pleased with the performance as he kept his TV interview very short. Before walking off he said:

“I just want to say congratulations to my players. It was a difficult road to be in the final and we are in the final. I don’t want to say anything else. It is enough, I am calm, I behaved on the bench, no sending-off, no punishment so no more words.”

Football fans watching Sky’s coverage took to Twitter to criticise Mourinho’s conduct.
