Mourinho Not Happy With Performance against Basel

Mourinho Not Happy With Performance against Basel

Although the result last night, against the Swiss club Basel, stand Manchester United in good stead when it comes to laying the foundations for qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League, it wasn`t a performance that got the full approval of Jose Mourinho.

Talking to the media after the game, Jose was critical of his players for what he called playing 'Playstation football`.

Explaining himself to the media, Jose remarked,

'Until 2-0 we were stable, we played with confidence.

'After 2-0 everything changed, we stopped playing seriously and stopped making right decisions.'

Before further adding,

'We could have put ourselves in trouble.

'We were playing fantasy football, Playstation football. I don't like it - flicks and tricks.

'We gambled and you have to respect your opponent. I don't know if goal difference will play a part.

'We lost position, our shape, we lost balls in easy situations. I didn't like it - the players relaxed too much.'

Is Jose right?

Did the team take their eye of the ball once the lead was established?
