Jose Mourinho reacts to Manchester United’s 2-0 victory over Watford

by Tanveer Arayan


Jose Mourinho was full of praise for Manchester United players in their 2-0 victory over Watford at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.

The Portuguese boss labelled his side as fabulous and phenomenal as they showed signs of starting to play the classic United way.

Goals from Anthony Martial and Juan Mata helped Mourinho’s men claim all three Premier League points with a entertaining win over Walter Mazzarri’s side.

Speaking after the game, Mourinho was in great spirits while talking to the press.

“People sometimes forget that these teams like Watford and Stoke have very good players,” he said.

“I looked at this team and these players were in Italy when I was in Italy for Napoli, Inter, Lazio. These are top players.

“In the first half the football was fabulous.

“The fans got behind the team just before we scored the goal because we were phenomenal.

“When I got the job they were saying at Manchester United you need to play the football in a certain way and I agree.

“You cannot play a counterattacking style, but then you have to analyse the situation.”

Mourinho deserves praise for the way he’s managed his players this season, as he took a stance on Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial, who have returned to the team in spectacular form.

Hopes are he continues to play his midfield trio as they played a vital role in the convincing win.
