Manchester United’s manager, Jose Mourinho sparked another controversy at the KC Stadium after Hull’s City 2-1 win over the Red devils in the English Football League.
The 54 year old who was celebrating his birthday, could not get a birthday present as his team was beaten at the KC Stadium through a late goal from Oumar Niasse.
A Tom Huddlestone penalty which was given by referee Jon Moss for an adjudged foul on Harry Maguire by Marcos Rojo but Jose Mourinho claimed he don’t accept was cancelled out by Paul Pogba before a neatly crafted strike by Oumar Niasse secured the win for the Tigers but it was Manchester United who progressed to the final after a 4-3 aggregate win.
The loss means United ends their 17 match unbeaten run but have a final with Southampton to play on February 26. Yet Jose Mourinho refuses to accept that United have ended their unbeaten run.
He refused to comment on the game and spent just 28 secs speaking to the media after the game. He said in the post match presser that United are still unbeaten according to him.
“We didn’t lose,” he said. “It was 1-1. I only saw two goals. I saw a Pogba goal and their goal, a fantastic goal. It was 1-1, we are still unbeaten. I think 18 matches unbeaten is amazing.
“I didn’t see Hull’s first goal. We celebrate, we are in the final. I don’t want to speak about the penalty or the performance. The game was in our pocket, under our control, and something happened to open the game.
“The game was dead. The game was what we wanted it to be. I don’t want to say anything else, it is enough. I am calm. I behaved on the bench. No sending off, no punishment, so no more words.”
Manchester United will have at least eight games to play before their game on February 26 against Southampton with games spread across all competitions; FA Cup, EPL and Europa League. They play Wigan Athletic next in the FA Cup on Sunday.
