John Guidetti missed an incredible chance to score just before the final whistle at Old Trafford, United qualified for the Europa League final with their 1-1 home draw, having beaten Celta in Vigo 1-0 last week, so when Jose Mourinho says that they “suffered until the end”, he really means “the end”.
We were the best team in the first leg but we never kill the game off. We never score goals related to the chances we have. It was an open game at home, all the pressure on our side
the Portuguese started telling BT Sport.
They were completely free of responsibility and gave us a very hard match. We suffered until the end and it was open until the last second. But the boys gave everything they had. I’m really pleased for them
Mourinho added. As for the red card that Eric Bailly received five minutes from time, the United manager didn’t think twice before calling his player ‘propably naive’.
I didn’t see the red card incident but Eric Bailly was phenomenal. The game was emotional for everyone. Some kept control better than others. Facundo Roncaglia is not new in these situations, Bailly was probably naive. We now lose a very important player for the final, and we don’t have many
the Portuguese manager said. United will face Ajax in the final, in Stockholm.
