Mourinho slams inconsistent United after shock loss

Mourinho slams inconsistent United after shock loss

The latest weekend in the Premier League proved monumental as Manchester United's surprise defeat at home against bottom side West Bromwich Albion delivered the title to rivals Manchester City.

City had won convincingly against Tottenham Hotspurs on Saturday, leaving their fate in the hands of United team waiting to engage the Baggies the next day.

"I won eight titles and I am not [over] the moon because I won against Manchester City", he added.

Their squad is crammed full of wonderfully potent performers such as Juan Mata, Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, yet the Premier League table, which shows them 16 points behind City, does not lie.

The Spaniard has now won seven league titles and 24 trophies overall as manager in three different countries, erasing doubts that he would fail to adapt to the rigours of the Premier League.

"I will tell you what I told him after the (City) match and it's exactly what I told him - I don't expect you to be man of the match every week, I don't expect you to score two goals every week", he said.

I don't know if I was the first or if I was the second or the third, but I congratulated them face-to-face when I had the chance to do it.

"It's incredible the way we played and I am so glad to be here and be part of this club", he said on the club's website.


"It hurts [for Manchester City to win the title]". You don't win titles with inconsistency.

You could see the attitudes of some players, masters of complication.

"It hasn't been lost, but people have taken the focus off what their jobs have been this season, so what we've tried to do is bring it all back together".

Mourinho acknowledged that "City were the best team" in the Premier League, telling the BBC: "Sooner or later they would get the points, so no dramas when the best team wins the league".

United, fresh off a win in the Manchester derby, will be looking to keep the momentum going despite the fact they have little to play for at this stage of the season. Players didn't want to or couldn't play simple.

It is nearly certainly too little too late for West Brom, who look doomed to relegation.

A serial victor as a manager with Barcelona and Bayern, Guardiola ended his first year in England at City without silverware - his only failure to win a trophy since his managerial career started back in 2007.
