A bad team deserves punishment – Mourinho blasts Manchester United display


Jose Mourinho slammed the performance of Manchester United in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Huddersfield Town, surmising that "a bad team deserves to be punished".

United appeared to be in control until the 25th minute when Phil Jones was forced off with an injury, and Victor Lindelof replaced him in what proved to be a crucial moment in the match.

"I was not expecting that [poor first half]," Mourinho told Sky Sports. "The team that started with intensity, the team playing the game of their lives, won.

"Maybe in [the] second half we had more control, playing against a team and incredible wind. If we wanted a bit more then maybe we get a draw, but we deserve the defeat.

"We deserved it - the team that wanted it more, wanted to compete, to be more aggressive, won. When the best team wins, there is nothing to say."
