Everyone who watched Manchester United play Liverpool FC tonight will tell you how dull and drab the game was. The final result at Anfield, in game so hyped up that it was referred to as “Red Monday,” was 0-0.
United Manager Jose Mourinho blamed the contest’s lack of scoring on his opponent, as he said Liverpool didn’t attack. You can read his full quote here.
However, Mourinho wasn’t done condescending to Liverpool FC, as he said the team is not the “last wonder of the world.”
Mourinho told Sky Sports: “They are not the last wonder of the world, like you like to say they are, but they are very good team.
“It was more difficult for them than it was for us. We kept control of the game for long periods. In the first half, we were completely in control. In the second half, David De Gea made two great saves but it was out of context.”
“We controlled very well the emotion of the game and ourselves and also we could influence the atmosphere of the stadium. They were always showing their disappointment. I thought they were waiting for an easy match for them but it wasn’t.”
