‘That Disgraceful, Childish Second Goal Changed Everything’- Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho has described the second goal conceded by his Manchester United players against Crystal Palace as ‘disgraceful and childish’.

Manchester United went 2-0 down in the first half at Selhurst Park on Monday night, but they managed to turn things around after the break.

Chris Smalling and Romelu Lukaku scored to draw level, but it was a 90th-minute screamer from Nemanja Matic that will steal the headlines.

After the dramatic 3-2 victory, Mourinho told Sky Sports News: “That disgraceful, childish second goal changed everything, but the players kept an amazing attitude.

“Juan Mata was finding spaces inside, Marcus Rashford was open on the left and brought their right-back wide to give us more space in the middle.

“You always need that little bit of luck to win a match in the last few minutes. Sometimes the winner is the one who deserves the congratulations but I think [Palace boss] Roy Hodgson did everything right.

“I cannot tell you half of the things I told my team at half-time because there would be lots of bleeping on television. But what I can say was all about the tactical positioning. To come back from 2-0 down away from home against a team that is desperate for points, it gives us a great feeling.”
