Mourinho Blames Referee For Manchester Derby Defeat, Concedes Title To ‘Lucky’ City

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has accused referee for the Manchester derby Michael Oliver for denying his side a clear penalty.

City continued their impressive run in the current campaign with a hard-fought 2-1 win against United at Old Trafford in the league on Sunday.


With time running out, United thought they should have had a penalty after Ander Herrera went down inside the box but Oliver waved play on.

“My first reaction is I feel sorry for referee Michael Oliver because he had a very good match but unfortunately he made an important mistake,” Mourinho said in his post-match reaction.

“The result was made with a big penalty not given [on Ander Herrera]. That would have been 2-2 with 20 minutes to go

“Michael was unlucky because it was a clear penalty.”

On whether the title race is over, Mourinho adds: “Probably, yes.

“Manchester City are a very good team and they are protected by the luck, and the gods of football are behind them.”

  • This guy will never grow up. I think Mourinho does not read the Bible at all. Football agreed is business but it is entertainment and it is a no do or die affair. Maybe Mourinho should check for the meaning of entertainment in the dictionary in any language. Mourinho is even fulfilling a Bible prophecy in 2nd Timothy 3:1-5. Although I totally condemn the throwing of bottle at Mourinho, but he brought it on himself. Mourinho is like a rich man who is attracting attention on himself by displaying his wealth from robbers. Mourinho is such an arrogant man.
