Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has surprisingly criticized the fans following the Red Devils’ 2-0 victory over Leicester City on Saturday.
Manchester United continued their brilliant start to the campaign with a 2-0 victory over Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday but it has to be said that the Red Devils had to be very patient in order to claim the three points from the encounter.
Despite dominating possession throughout the match, United struggled to get past the inspired Kasper Schmeichel in the Leicester goal and they had to wait until the 70th minute to find the breakthrough through substitute Marcus Rashford.
After the goal, United coasted their way to a 2-0 triumph with another substitute in Marouane Fellaini finding the back of the net and while manager Jose Mourinho would surely have been left pleased with the result, he went on to criticize the fans at Old Trafford for being too quiet throughout the match.
Following the game, Mourinho was quoted saying, “I didn’t see the first goal. I was speaking with Lingard because Lingard was going to be the next player to come in.
“I saw the ball in the net and all the guys jumping around. It was the first time I saw the crowd. They were very quiet today. It was easy to know that was a goal because it was the first time I really understood the stadium was full.”
