Mour­inho pays trib­ute to ‘best team’ City

Irish Examiner - Sport - - SOCCER -

Premier League This was the fifth sea­son in which the Premier League ti­tle was de­cided at Old Traf­ford — more than any other ground. Jose Mour­inho im­plied his team had taken their eye off the ball at Old Traf­ford yes­ter­day, hav­ing cel­e­brated wildly deny­ing Manch­ester City the ti­tle in last week’s derby.

“I won eight ti­tles and I’m not in the moon be­cause I won against Manch­ester City, a match that is just three points,” he said. “I saw lots of peo­ple in the moon be­cause we won against Manch­ester City.”

United mid­fielder Juan Mata ex­pressed the pain felt by his team­mates af­ter they came back down to earth with a bump against West Brom yes­ter­day. “It’s a very big (dis­ap­point­ment),” he told Sky Sports. “To­day was a bad game, a bad day for every­one.

“Af­ter win­ning (against) Manch­ester City we wanted to keep go­ing with a good spirit but we didn’t play well, we didn’t cre­ate enough chances.

“It hurts, we didn’t do our job to­day.”
