Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has accused his players of jeopardizing Champions League victory over Basel by playing “Play-station football” despite their win according to report from the BBC.
United made remarkable return to the tournament with a 3-0 win at Old Trafford, but Mourinho expressed displeasure the players performance in the second half.
The former Real Madrid manager told BT Sport: “Until 2-0 we were stable, we played with confidence,” “After 2-0 everything changed, we stopped playing seriously and stopped making right decisions.”
Goals from Marouane Fellaini, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford gave United an ultimately comfortable victory.
But Mourinho said: “We could have put ourselves in trouble.”We were playing fantasy football, Playstation football. I don’t like it – flicks and tricks.”We gambled and you have to respect your opponent. I don’t know if goal difference will play a part.
“We lost position, our shape, we lost balls in easy situations. I didn’t like it, the players relaxed too much.” BBC Sport reported.
