Jose Mourinho sends message to Man United fans after Arsenal draw

Jose Mourinho was grateful for his team's support against Arsenal on Saturday

Jose Mourinho has thanked Manchester United’s fans for their support after their frustrating 1-1 draw with Arsenal on Saturday.

The Red Devils dominated proceedings for much of the game and were widely considered to be the better team but were forced to settle for a point.

United took the lead through Juan Mata’s low strike midway through the second half, but Mourinho’s men were pegged back late on when Olivier Giroud came off the bench to head in an equaliser.

The result ended up being a frustrating one for the Old Trafford faithful.

And Mourinho had plenty of praise for the home fans after the game as he thanked them for their support.

Speaking in an interview with MUTV, Mourinho said: “I think we have amazing fans – the way they react after this draw is amazing, because they know the players did fantastic work and they can control their disappointment with the result to praise the players and their performance.”

Manchester United now turn their attentions back to Europa League affairs and their home clash against Feyenoord on Thursday night.
