Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho Bemoans Players Attitude In Frustrating 1-1 Draw Against Wolves

  • Jose Mourinho was highly critical of his team's attitude after they were held to a 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton at Old Trafford.

After Manchester United's frustrating 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton at Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho was not a happy man. He saw his team break their winning streak after three consecutive wins against Burnley, Watford and Young Boys. 

Jose Mourinho was highly critical of his team's performance, which was lethargic, to say the least. In reference to his player's attitude, the Portuguese felt that the Red Devils lacked intensity as compared to their opponents.

"Wolves, by the way they faced the game, I think they deserve it. They play like I like to play which is like the World Cup final. That is the attitude I like my teams to have in every match. We didn't have that. They did. That attitude made a difference."

However, this is not the first time the former Real Madrid and Chelsea boss has displayed his antics. Most recently, after the humiliating defeat against Tottenham Hotspur, he demanded 'respect' for his achievements in the Premier League era.

As far as the match was concerned, Wolves looked the far more entertaining side than the hosts. They were unlucky to go down in the first half after Fred teed up with Paul Pogba, to score his first goal in Manchester United colors.

The Red Devils somehow managed to survive the first half thanks to two incredible saves by David de Gea to deny Wolves the equalizer. With the pressure mounting on the Manchester United, they finally crumbled. 

Seven minutes into the second-half Wolves were awarded the much-needed goal courtesy of some sloppy play from Paul Pogba. The Frenchman gave away possession from the middle of the park, which led to a Wolves counter. Jao Moutinho, met the final pass to strike a sweet shot into the top right corner to draw the visitors level.

If the result was something that United fans were not expecting, earlier in the day, the Old Trafford faithful were up for a treat. The former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson was spotted at Old Trafford for the first time since recovering from his brain surgery. However, his presence didn't help Manchester United's cause.

Meanwhile, it's confirmed that Manchester United aren't the force they were under Alex Ferguson's tutelage. Gone are the days, where they would beat teams left and right, but now, under Jose Mourinho, the Red Devils look like a mid-table team, which is capable of only producing once in every two or three matches.
