Manchester United boss whose side lost to Newcastle in Sunday’s premier league match at St James Park has found a more controversial way to describe his opponent’s victory in the 1-0 loss.
Jose Mourinho who congratulated Newcastle for their win was also quick to say that “Newcastle fought like animals” to defend their 1-0 lead.
Mirror Sport quoted the United boss to say: “I know Benitez is very happy with three points and the Gods of football were with them.
“I have that smile but I am disappointed. We did more than enough to leave without a defeat.
Asked if he was disappointed with the defending, Mourinho added: “Yes. It is not a dangerous free kick. Players were in position. But we miss the challenge in the air.
According to further report from the BBC Sport the United boss was quoted to say: “My verdict is we could’ve been here for 10 hours and not score a goal. Newcastle played with their lives and defended with their lives.
“They got from us a defensive mistake and from a lateral free-kick they scored. The gods of football were clearly in their side. They must have an amazing feeling after giving absolutely everything.
The host produced a fierce and committed performance, they made more sprints (553 to their opponents’ 490), ran further (115km to 105km), and in DeAndre Yedlin and Ritchie had the game’s fastest and most industrious players.
