Anderlecht managed a late equaliser and made winning the Europa League that much harder for Mourinho’s United.
He put the blame squarely on his forwards – Zlatan , Rashford, Henrikh Mkhitaryan,Lingard and Anthony Martial.
Despite having such awesomely superior firepower United could only manage one goal in the game.
“If I was a United defender I would be very upset with the attacking players because they have to kill the game and they didn’t. The result should be much better and we can only blame ourselves because we had an easy game to play in the second half and didn’t play in attack with that [killer] instinct.
We lost the ball easily too many times, we stopped our counter attacks because of sloppy touches, sloppy decisions. And then we gave them the opportunity to have some counter attacks and luckily our defenders were very much in the game and they resolved all these problems.
You have to play more seriously. We put all together the performance of two or three of our attacking players and you squeeze not much juice out of it and the people behind were not focused.”
