Jose Mourinho hits out at four of his players following another home drawPublished April 01, 2017
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho made it very clear how unhappy he was following his side’s draw against West Brom.
This season, United have seen a seriously large amount of points dropped at home, and on the road, after watching their sides fail to convert their chances.
Mourinho knew his side would struggle, especially without Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and ripped into the forwards on show – making it clear he expects, and needs more.
He spoke to MUTV, and said: “What I can say is that we tried, we had six players, for me, absolutely phenomenal in their game, in their attitude, in their mentality, in their consistency – Valencia, Bailly, Rojo, Young, Carrick and Fellaini.
“Then you have four creative players, four players who you need to score a goal for you, and they didn’t.
“They had flashes, they had glimpses, they had moments but they don’t have consistency, and we pay two more points for that.”
Come the summer, it will be hard to imagine Mourinho not pushing to bring in forwards who he feels will score the chances being created, yet their recent injury issues, especially to Juan Mata, coupled with the sheer amount of games they have to play were always going to take it’s toll, against a tough West Brom side to boot.
