His team left Brussels with a draw that gives them advantage ahead of the return leg in Manchester, but Jose Mourinho wouldn’t hear any of that after last night’s game at Anderlecht.
The result should have been much better and we can only blame ourselves because we had an easy game to play in the second half and we didn’t play in attack with that killer instinct
the Portuguese said in the Press conference after the game. United took the lead early on with a Henrikh Mkhitaryan goal, but failed to score that very crucial second goal, and got equalized four minutes from time.
We lost the ball easily too many times, we stopped our counter-attacks because of sloppy touches, sloppy decisions
Mourinho said, adding that if he were a Man United defender,
I would be very upset with the attacking players because they had to kill the game and they didn’t
Even so, the United manager admitted that the result gives them an advantage.
To play at home with an advantage, to start the game with an advantage, is a good result in any case
were his words, before repeating though that his attackers need to show more killer instinct in the remaining games this season.
