Middlesbrough 1 United 3 - Views from the Bench

Following the 3-1 win at the Riverside Stadium yesterday, a win achieved in Manchester United`s third game in less than a week, both managers, as is expected, conducted their post-match interviews.

Jose who, ahead of the game, had suggested tiredness my cost Manchester United two points, remarked,

'I applaud our attitude and desire and our way of thinking. We don't have plan B, C, D, E, F and G - but we have M, N, O, P and S.

'It is fantastic because we manage in the same week, to go to the quarter-finals of the Europa League which is an important target for us.

'At the same time, we got these three points that keep us in the race for the fourth position so we still have two doors for Champions League football next season.

'These guys gave everything, we started the game really well. Valdes made three fantastic saves before our first goal. We controlled everything until our second goal.'


It seems Jose has calmed down, slightly, after his lament at the fixture congestion United faced last week.

As for the Middlesbrough boss, Steve Agnew, the man in the caretaker role at the Riverside Stadium had this to say,

'If we show that commitment and that sort of intensity until the end of the season then we have a real chance of staying in this league.

'It is a relief to get a goal and I felt that when we got that goal, we had Manchester United defending in the box for their lives and again we didn't quite get the bounce of the ball to get the equaliser, which on the balance of play I thought we deserved.

'I know that we will take that fighting spirit for the rest of the season.'


Hopefully Middlesbrough can remain in the Premier League this season, but it looks to be a hard call as to whether they will.
