Jose Mourinho has hit out at his Manchester United players for failing to take a litany of chances before Harry Maguire netted an injury time equaliser for Leicester City.
Man United received a handful of chances to kill the game in the second half after Daniel Amartey picked up a red card and Leicester poured forward in search of an equaliser.
Speaking after the game, Mourinho labelled his side’s finishing as a ‘joke’.
If Mourinho didn’t lambast his players for their in-game arrogance and complacency after Bristol City, they’ll need some goggles tonight.
This was nothing short of disgraceful – a word I don’t use often. To approach a series of late chances to add to their tally in such listless, lackadaisical fashion was nothing short of horrible to watch: pedestrian, indecisive, and languid, despite the pitch opening up for them for a good 20 minutes.
The manager doesn’t deserve blame here. His side, on paper, should have rolled Leicester over. That they didn’t was a damning indictment of just how far away United, collectively, really are from challenging for the title.
