Mourinho Blames Poor Refereeing & Bad Luck For Loss

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho believes poor refereeing decisions and bad luck were to blame for his side's 3-1 defeat to Watford on Sunday.

Man Utd Target Splits From Agent To Represent Himself

The Red Devils found themselves trailing 1-0 at half-time, after Etienne Capoue had put the hosts into the lead with a composed finish. The Old Trafford club managed to get back into the game in the second half thanks a goal from Marcus Rashford, but were then punished by Juan Zuniga and Troy Deeney minutes towards the end of the encounter.

The Portuguese manager was left frustrated with his side's collapse, and thought the officials played their part in his team's loss.

"In the first half, for about 25 to 30 minutes we didn't play well and that is something that we can control. We can improve, we can work on it," Mourinho said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"Then the referee and the linesman's mistake is not under my control. I can't do anything to improve it.

"In the second half, we were much better. We get the draw (equaliser) and after that we were the team. Gomes makes a phenomenal save and the lucky moments again are not something we can control.

"We cannot control the referee, we cannot control the lucky moments. The only thing we can control is our individual and collective mistakes."
