Jose Mourinho saw his team win a dramatic encounter at Old Trafford thanks to a late goal.
Manchester United trailed by two goals after the opening 10 minutes, however, Alexis Sanchez got the winner in the 90th minute.
The United manager spoke after the game and claimed that there was a “man-hunt” against him. Mourinho even added that he is being held responsible for a host of events.
The Portuguese was quoted by the Independent as saying:
“As a friend of mine was saying to me this morning, if tomorrow it rains in London it is my fault. If there is some difficulties with the agreements of Brexit, it is my fault.
“I have to be ready for all of this. I think a lot of wickedness and clear man-hunting, in football is too much. It is my life. It is life I love and since I was kid I work for this.”
The manager added that such a situation was not helping the players as they weren’t coping well with the pressure.
Mourinho added there was “wickedness” in football but he was learning to deal with it.
United have a couple of weeks before their next game, but a few fans were unsure of what to make of the manager’s comments.
It is true – the pundits etc are trying to get back at mourinho for his over aggressive comments – which on reflection actually helped them sell newspapers and interest in d EPL.sad !!!

That makes Mourinho different from Moyes and LvG. He gave all the credit to not some individuals or even himself but the whole club. I love what he said: Don’t play for the manager, play for the club.

What does he call what he did to Juan Mata at Chelsea. Raul, Casillas at Madrid?
To some extent even to Sergio Ramos. Tried his best to freeze the guy out.

Mourinho post match interview so confusing. Too much wickedness and a man hunt focussed on him, then he throws two of his young players Rashford & McTominay under the bus.

As usual. It’s all about him. Even after a thrilling comeback he makes it all about him. Humiliates Bailly, Rashford is sad and ignored when he brings him off, McTominay humiliated Lindelhof not good enough to replace Bailly but everyone’s out to get Jose. The mans lost it

One win, something he was supposed to do with ease, has made his head big again.
