Manchester United manager José Mourinho commented on their home win against Brighton in the quarterfinals of the English FA Cup.
“We didn’t play as I wanted them [United footballers] to play,” the BBC
quoted the Portuguese specialist as saying. “We deserved to win, clearly - we had the match under control - but we didn’t play well.
“Once more I wasn’t happy with the connection in the build-up. I blame everybody.
“A few other guys, I saw them scared to play. I cannot say much more. It is a relation with personality, is a relation to trust, is a relation to class.
“When it is dark and cold, and in football that means a period of bad results or a bad result, not everybody has the confidence and personality to play really.
“To be on the pitch and touch the ball every five minutes, everyone can do it, but to be on the pitch and say ‘give me the ball because I want to play,’ not everyone can do that.”
Man United beat Brighton by a score of 2-0 in their quarterfinal match in Manchester and advanced to the FA Cup semifinals.
Tottenham Hotspur already had booked their place in the semifinals.
