Jose Mourinho reassures Man United fans after 3-0 loss to Tottenham
Jose Mourinho insists that his Man United side have a good spirit despite their loss to Tottenham on Monday
Jose Mourinho has insisted that his Manchester United team have a strong spirit despite their 3-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Monday night.
The Red Devils were sent crashing to their second straight top flight defeat as they slumped to a home loss to Spurs in front of their own fans at Old Trafford.
Manchester United have now only taken three points from their opening three games in the Premier League this season to leave them six points off the pace in the race for the title early on.
Mourinho has cut a frustrated figure at Old Trafford in recent weeks and his side’s stuttering form will only serve to add to the pressure on the Manchester United manager.
However, despite Manchester United’s stuttering form, Mourinho feels that his side have shown a strong team spirit in their recent outings.
Speaking at his post-match news conference at Old Trafford on Monday night, Mourinho said: “If anyone that watched this game, one thing is for sure: the team is united.
“The boys wouldn’t have fought the way they did and wouldn’t have given what they gave if they weren’t united.
“I think it should be time to stop with untruth because otherwise people don’t believe what they read.
“For the team to fight the way they did, with empathy, with solidarity between the players and dignity to play together for Manchester United and lose at home, of course it’s a very difficult thing for anyone.
“I think one is clear: the team is united. And there is no union without the manager.”
Manchester United will be aiming to get their campaign back on track when they travel to Burnley in the top flight on Sunday afternoon.
Mourinho is aiming to become the first manager to steer the Red Devils to the title since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.
