Eric Bailly, Jose Mourinho Benfica Preview Press Conference (Video)


Manchester United host Benfica tonight on the verge of clinching passage into the knockout round of UEFA Champions League. A win and they are almost certain to advance beyond the group stages, something Louis van Gaal was unable to do during his time at Old Trafford.

Manager Jose Mourinho met the media, along with central defender Eric Bailly, and we have the entire press conference for you via YouTube below:

As you can see from the YouTube headline, this was essentially the “stop criticizing Lukaku” press conference.

Over the weekend, Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho got very upset about his side’s supporters booing striker Romelu Lukaku during Saturday’s 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur. Today however, he walked those comments back a bit, saying the fans have a right to boo both him and his players.

All in all, the point of this dialogue was to protect Romelu Lukaku, and we covered that already in detail over at this link.
