Furious Mourinho slams United players after eighth home draw of the season

Date Posted,April 1, 2017

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho took aim at his forward line after they were blunted by West Brom at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils could only register a goalless draw against Tony Pulis’ Baggies, leaving them four points behind Manchester City in the race for the top four.

Mourinho refused to criticise West Brom’s tactics, instead criticising his front four for failing to find the back of the net.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford were tasked with scoring the goals for United, but fired blanks as they dropped two crucial points.

“I don’t criticise the other team,” said Mourinho. “The other team came here to get a point, they came to defend and try win some times. They did that. I have nothing to say in relation to that.

“What I can say is we tried. We had six players absolutely phenomenal in their attitude, mentality and consistency. Valencia, Bailly, Rojo, Young, Carrick and Fellaini.
