Why I Slammed Water Bottle After Fellaini's Winner - Jose Mourinho

Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho, has disclosed why he slammed water bottles onto the ground after Maroune Fellaini’s last-gasp winner against Young Boys in Tuesday’s Champions League home game.


Young Boys were on the verge of snatching a hard-fought draw before Fellani’s strike deep into stoppage time.

“Relief,” Mourinho said of his celebrations. “Frustration before that and relief with the goal.

“I think we didn’t play for that, we didn’t play for 0-0. We didn’t play to be in trouble until the last minute, so frustration.

“I was not unhappy with the players. Not at all.

“Frustrated with the fact that we couldn’t score, yes, but my players were very tired at the end and that’s what I love – I want them to be very tired.

“It means that they give everything, and they did that, with moments of very good football, moments of quality, moments of hypothetical beautiful goals and then also with moments of pressure, moments of lack of confidence, that frustrate us.

“I have to reunite the goal we scored with David De Gea’s save. I think without David’s save, no winning goal.

“But, in the end, we qualify in a very difficult group with one match in hand, suffering a lot, but we did it.”
