Jose Mourinho reacts to Man United’s 1-1 draw with Celta Vigo
The Man United manager bemoans the Red Devils' wastefulness in front of goal after a 1-1 draw with Celta Vigo secured their Europa League final spot
Jose Mourinho admitted Manchester United were made to suffer as the Red Devils reached the Europa League final despite Thursday night’s unconvincing 1-1 draw with Celta Vigo.
The Red Devils were looking to build on a 1-0 win against Celta Vigo in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final last week after Marcus Rashford’s winner.
Manchester United were unable to capitalise on a dominant first-leg performance and Mourinho’s side were also made to pay for their wastefulness.
Marouane Fellaini broke the deadlock in the 17th minute to give Manchester United a 2-0 aggregate lead on the night.
The home side were made to sweat in the final 10 minutes at Old Trafford following Facundo Roncaglia’s equaliser with five minutes to play.
Eric Bailly and goal-scorer Roncaglia were sent off minutes later for violent conduct to leave both teams with 10 men before John Guidetti wasted a chance to cause an upset with the final kick of the game.
Speaking to BT Sport about Manchester United’s performance in the second leg, Mourinho said:
“We never kill. We never score goals related to the chances that we have. They gave us a very hard match. We had to suffer until the end.”
