Jose Mourinho has said defeating former club Manchester United 6-1 is an for him and his Tottenham Hotspur players.
Despite conceding a early penalty Spurs rallied back to inflict a heavy defeat on United at Old Trafford.
Bruno Fernandes opened the scoring from the penalty spot for United before a double from Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane and a goal each from Taguy Ndombele and Serge Aurier secured the win.
And speaking on the big win Mourinho said:” I imagine some will speak about the second half, 11 against 10. I focus on the first half, 11 vs 11, we were so, so, so good at every level.
“We deserve so much the victory. To win 6-1 against Manchester United at Old Trafford is an honour for all of us, considering the dimension of Manchester United and Old Trafford.
“The pleasure is not the 6-1, the pleasure is the performance and 3 points which we really need after losing points at home vs Newcastle.”
The Portuguese coach expressed his sympathy for United manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer
“I have sympathy for Ole because of the result. I don’t remember that I lost by six but I lost by five, I lost by four. I know how we hurt. I know it’s very very important that the winning manager behaves in a way where he shows sympathy. Of course I want to win, and of course I want to win by seven, not by six. Don’t get me wrong.
“But it’s sympathy in our behaviour. Today was him, tomorrow is me. Of course I feel sympathy for him. I can imagine tha he’s not going to sleep very very well. But this is the hard life of us.
“But when I look to his team, there was an evolution. It’s not like he arrives here and the team don’t improve. The team is improving, they have good players, he bought lots of young players. Very good players.
“If it’s true that Cavani is coming, Cavani is one of the top strikers in the world. Manchester United is Manchester United. It’s not a defeat that is going to destroy them. I can imagine they will react like Manchester United always react.
“So I feel sympathy for the result, but apart from that no sympathy because he has an incredible job and it feels like the players like him, they are with him. They are going to react for sure.”
And on Spurs winning a trophy this season, Mourinho added:”I don’t know if we can win a trophy or not, I know we’re working very hard and well, for a long time, since we arrived. This season obviously Mr. Levy and the structure of the club gave us a much improved squad and what I told you in the first press conference of the season is that our objective is to win every match.
“Of course we’re not going to, we’re going to lose, like we lost against Everton and draw like we did against Newcastle. But the target, objective is every match we go to win.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
