Mourinho Slams Man Utd Stars After Shock Defeat

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has criticised his players following their shock defeat to Basel in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night.

United were left disappointed by a late Basel goal on Wednesday, which would have been especially frustrating given the number of chances Mourinho's side squandered in the first half.

Many have criticised Daley Blind for the home side's late winner, but the Portuguese tactician refused to lay blame at the Dutchman's feet, and bemoaned the team's wastefulness in the first 45 minutes.

"I don't think it’s fair for Blind to blame himself because he had a very positive game and we have to blame everyone that was on the pitch because we lost so many chances we put ourselves in a very risky position," he said, according to the Daily Star.

"We lost because in the first half we should be 5-0 but we couldn't score after being so dominant and so dominant in such an easy way.

"It looks for many periods of the first half that it was impossible not to win.

"Experience tells when you lose so many chances, you put yourself in this possible situation.

"I think in the majority of the second half, the feeling everybody would be ok with 0-0 but then they score a goal in the last minute."
