Mourinho: I did not like my team

Wolves, back in the Premier League this term after winning the Championship a year ago, have nine points from six games so far, one point less than United - who are eight behind leaders Liverpool.

In his first programme notes for nearly four weeks, Mourinho penned a paean to United's followers who stayed until the end against Tottenham.

Teased by his clear eye for goal, the Old Trafford faithful will be hoping he can begin to find the net more regularly. Against Tottenham we lost the game but I liked very very much my team's performance.

"It was a fair result". The boys had played well and were unfortunate.

Mourinho was scathing of his team's attitude, claiming Wolves played like it was a World Cup final and United were only at 30 per cent.

Whether that had any influence or not Firmino walked into Melwood on the morning of the match and told Klopp he was fit to play. Finally, we scored the third goal which was very important for the team".


"What is most important for me is that we are growing".

But, after throwing on Anthony Martial and Juan Mata as substitutes, United might have taken all three points with the better of the late chances.

United manager Jose Mourinho had boasted of his team's defensive improvements following a strong start to September in which his side had won all three of their games in the league and Europe.

"That is the attitude I like my teams to have in every match", he continued.

"I could say we were exhausted, Champions League, terrible pitch [at Young Boys of Bern] - the body suffers the different impact on an artificial rather than actual grass - not coming home after the match".

Rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield , the top overall pick in the National Football League entry draft, helped inspire the comeback. Landry then lofted a pass into the end zone to Mayfield, whose conversion tied it and sent Cleveland fans into a frenzy.


Away wins over Burnley and Watford, as well as the midweek Champions League victory at Young Boys Bern, had eased the sense of frustration at the club following their poor start to the campaign.

"Come on, this is something you learn when you are a kid in the academy, you don't need experiences at the highest level to learn that".

"I am optimistic, but a hard season, yes", he said. When we're at home we should attack, attack, attack. "It is a basic law of football".

However, on return for the second half, Portuguese star Joao Moutinho equalised for his side after just eight minutes.

By the end of a rare 3pm kick-off at Old Trafford on Saturday, it was the 3,000 Wolves fans singing "We're Wolverhampton, we're on our way back" and "Nuno's the special one" in front of their enthusiastic manager. Let us know what you think by leaving a comment.
