Mourinho Blasts his defenders after Derby County loss

In a shock result at Old Trafford on Tuesday night,  Championship side Derby County managed by Former Mourinho player Frank Lampard beat Man United 8-7 in a penalty shootout.

The match ended 2-2 after 90 minutes. Juan Mata opened for United after just three minutes, while Harry Wilson levelled for the Rams just before the hour mark.

Argentina International Goal Keeper Sergio Romero was sent off for Man United in the 67th minute.

Jack Marriott then scored  for Derby in the 86th minute, but Marouane Fellaini levelled in the 90th.

Which prompted the match to go to penalties inorder to get the winner of the tie.

Once again, Jose Mourinho called out his own players after the Derby defeat.

Mourinho revealed he had little faith in his own side once the shootout went into the latter stages. The Man United boss said:

“With one less player there was a reaction of pride, of a group that didn’t want to lose and tried until the last second. Then penalties come and someone has to miss. When I saw the penalties going after the sixth, seventh takers, I knew that we were going to be in trouble with Jones, with Eric. I knew we’d be in trouble again. You think I criticise? I don’t think so. That’s not criticising the team, I belong to the team. Idon’t think you are correct when you say I’m criticising. Do you want me to analyse or go away? You want me to say we play a phenomenal match? The truth is the opponent in the second half started better than us and we weren’t able to match that intensity.”
