Mourinho: Manchester United confidence hit by errors

Posted August 21, 2018

"They had more hunger than us and I think they showed that, but our attitude wasn't right".

"I know the feelings of players and it's not so hard to raise your game for this type of game".

"Especially that third goal - we expected to come at 2-1 with positivity - then the third goal killed us off in the second half".

Pogba scored a late, late penalty after Duffy's foul on Fellaini, but the Seagulls saw out the remaining time to beat United at home for the second successive season. It's not good for me.

The Frenchman, who returned to United from Juventus for a fee of £89 million (R1.64 billion) in 2016, has had his ups and downs since moving back to England, and there is speculation he could be looking for a way out the club. "There are basic mistakes that makes it nearly an impossible mission to win the match".

Many of Mourinho's stars, including World Cup victor Pogba, new signing Fred and French forward Anthony Martial, were anonymous for long periods, but the boss refused to criticise individuals.

You get the sense that something will have to change sooner rather than later if they want to stay within touching distance of Manchester City.

Brighton displayed incessant energy from the initial stages to put United's midfielders into pressure.

"I can not see any other outcome than unfortunately Jose Mourinho will probably lose his job if it carries on like it is".

"United need serious football people to guide what they are doing".

"I was disappointed for Lewis. For me that's the story of the game", he told the BBC.

At present, United are disjointed on and off the pitch, with different messages coming from the manager, the club and stand-in captain Pogba, who was as poor as the rest on Sunday and admitted it, which is more worrying. Past year we had nearly maybe the same attitude [as Sunday], and it's not right.

"But I don't think it's a big thing".

After the game, Ed Woodward went down to the dressing room and spent five minutes chatting with the players behind closed doors, according to the Manchester Evening News. "We know they've got good, quick front players so we just had to match their runs and try to let them play in front of us".
