Jose Mourinho's post-match interview after Brighton loss was brutal


Alexis Sanchez's arrival at Manchester United has had a negative impact on two of his team-mates, according to one pundit.

And their performance against Brighton on Friday night was nothing short of atrocious. - United have lost away from home against three newly promoted sides in a league season for the first time in their history, also losing at Huddersfield (2-1 in October) and Newcastle (1-0 in February).

While the 59-year-old was keen to praise his Brighton players after the match, there was an overjoyed reaction as plenty took to Twitter to pay tribute to the manager's achievement, and the man himself.

"So maybe now you understand why some players play more than others, and you don't ask all the time why A, B, and C don't play more". I said during commentary that I felt if there's any player who wondered why he wasn't playing in the cup final, you can just show them this video. I know them. I thought that the possibility to start the game and give reason would give them something.

"Probably we are not as good individually as people think we are, and I keep saying, if you manage to finish second, it is great, more than great if you manage to finish second".

UN urges Trump not to quit Iran deal
Technically, Trump must decide by May 12 whether to renew "waivers" suspending some of the United States sanctions on Iran. Trump out of withdrawal because he seems intent on it, a second White House official said.

Manchester United are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of next season. "I knew it and I told them", said Mourinho after the game. First of all, he was the most precise about the situation regarding Romelu Lukaku.

But it gave Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford the chance to impress.

United belatedly rallied but Ryan saved from Rashford and Jesse Lingard fired wide as Brighton held out for a memorable and thoroughly merited win.

But now that Lukaku is injured, Mourinho simply had to play someone instead of him. He made a couple of big mistakes, and Martial himself was also underwhelming.

It was no more than Brighton deserved after outplaying their more illustrious rivals throughout the contest and they sent a passionate home crowd into raptures after Gross headed home a 57th-minute victor.
