Mourinho was unhappy at his players’ attitude during the match with Basle
Wednesday, September 13, 2017
Jose Mourinho accused his Manchester United players of failing to respect Basle and resorting to ‘PlayStation football’ during the 3-0 victory at Old Trafford.
But Mourinho was unhappy at the way his players took their foot off the gas, playing fancy football, rather than killing off the game.
Mourinho said: “After 2-0 I think everything changed and we stopped to play, stopped to think, stopped to play seriously.
“We stopped to make the right decisions on the pitch and we could put ourselves in trouble.
“Bad decisions, fantasy football, PlayStation football, tricks and when you stopped to play as a team and when you stopped to play seriously I don’t like and you gamble a little bit.
“The players probably felt that the game was under control with the 2-0 but football is football and you have to respect your opponent.”
