Mourinho brash as Man Utd secure last 16 place

Your team are not playing the way they're expected to play.

The fact the scoreboard was scoreless at that time wasn't even a surprise, just another below-par home match, this time against the Swiss champions whom they beat 3-0 in Berne in September.

The United manager was criticised by Gary Lineker amongst others for his reaction to a Marcus Rashford miss when he turned to the crowd and nodded in disgust. This is much more comfortable than being on the touchline like we managers are. "I controlled the ball, if it touched my hand it was not on goal".

It prompted Mourinho to show his frustration by throwing a water bottle carrier to the ground.

"Never one of my teams stays behind the group phase".

The United manager stopped short of using such cutting soundbites on the eve of the Young Boys encounter but shed a light on the issues he faces.

Mourinho did have some kind words to say about David De Gea however.

This was not the first and is unlikely to be the last time that we see United win a match in this fashion, but what does Mourinho's use of Fellaini say about his tactics and general management at Old Trafford? I was frustrated with the fact that we couldn't score, yes, but my players were very exhausted at the end and that's what I love, I want them to be very exhausted.

It wasn't just about United's late victor.

Fellaini's arrival in 2013 as a 27.5 million pounds signing by his former Everton boss David Moyes, was hardly greeted with enthusiasm by United fans who were already underwhelmed by the choice of successor to Alex Ferguson.

"In this case, we have the best goalkeeper in the world and I know that he wants to stay". "It is very hard for us to score goals".

One man who, in spite the horrific man management of Jose Mourinho, has managed to excel in recent weeks. "It was a very big challenge for me with some of the things he's said in the past, especially in the last year or two years".

Mourinho made the bold decision to leave Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku on the bench and Alexis Sanchez out of his squad as his made six changes from a drab goalless draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Phil Jones is preferred ahead of Eric Bailly as the England worldwide replaces the injured Victor Lindelof alongside Chris Smalling at the back and Nemanja Matic keeps his place in midfield.
