He admitted that losing does not feel nice and no one likes it, but in this particular case he didn’t mind at all, and he explained why.
It’s very important to lose a match in preseason. You don’t like to lose but I think it’s very important
Jose Mourinho started telling MUTV, after Manchester United’s 1-0 defeat in their International Champions Cup match against Barcelona.
I think it would be very bad for us to leave the US without a defeat, playing against teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City, it would be very bad to go home with just victories. So the defeat is good
the Portuguese manager explained, before expressing his absolute satisfaction with how the preseason has gone so far for his team.
I am very happy. There are no injuries because with Juan Mata and Ander Herrera at this moment, I don’t think we are talking about injuries. They will be back to training I think next Saturday, no problem to be back to training, so no injuries, a fantastic atmosphere, a fantastic work ethic, great organisation. So now we just need to land safely in Manchester and this part of the preseason was perfect
the United manager said.
