After a 6-1 win at Old Trafford, José Mourinho made a tame speech in the post-match press conference… until it came to the refereeing.
There, the Portuguese manager said that “if anyone can complain about VAR decisions it’s Tottenham,” and not the United.
Tottenham Hotspur coach Jose Mourinho said Sunday’s 6-1 win over Manchester United was “a historic victory”.
“Manchester United don’t lose many games and even less by six goals. It’s a historic victory, but in the end it’s three points and three very important points because we’ve already lost five at home,” the Portuguese player told Sky Sports.
“We prepared ourselves very well tactically and also psychologically. We were so prepared that not even a penalty and a 1-0 lead in the first minute affected us,” he added.
It was a tame press conference until that point, but challenged about the controversial expulsion of Anthony Martial for allegedly attacking Lamela, Mourinho jumped at the chance to talk about United’s complaints about VAR.
“I didn’t see the move, maybe I’ll look at it again later, but if anyone can complain about VAR decisions it’s Tottenham. Not just this season, but last season,” he said.
He added a bold statement: “If anyone cannot complain about VAR, it is Manchester United”. “All I know is that we played extremely well today,” concluded Mourinho.
