Mourinho Slams Stars As Man City Claim The Title

An unhappy Jose Mourinho described his Manchester United squad as "masters in complication" after their 1-0 defeat to bottom-of-the-table West Bromwich Albion, a result that effectively handed rivals Manchester City the Premier League title.

Mourinho: Why I Substituted Pogba Again

The Red Devils were aware that if they beat the Baggies on Sunday, they would once again have delayed the Citizens' title celebrations for one more week, but this was not to be as Jay Rodriguez popped up with a 73rd-minute header to clinch the game for the relegation strugglers.

After the match, Mourinho made it clear he was unimpressed with his players' efforts, lack of fluidity and desire.

"I think we were deservedly punished," he told Sky Sports.

"We were masters in complication, everything was complicated. We didn't want (to play) or couldn't play simple, everything was slow, one more flick, trick, turn. There was no fluidity.

"We did not deserve to lose, but we gave them the opportunity to win the match."

The Portuguese manager also suggested that his side had become complacent after their dramatic comeback win over Pep Guardiola's men last week.

"I won eight titles and I am not (over) the moon because I won against Manchester City," he added.

"I saw lots of people (over) the moon because we won against City. You could see the difference in the attitude to players compared to last week.

"We deserve to be punished, but the defeat was too heavy."
