Jose Mourinho Promises Man United Will Fight in Every Match Going Forward



In the wake of the historical upset at Bristol City Wednesday night, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said that some members of his team didn’t show up to the office. Thus, with a trip to Leicester City on the horizon tomorrow night, desire and motivation are hot topics of discussion in the United world.

At his weekly news conference on Friday (video here), Mourinho was asked what the expectations are for him, specifically, for his performance as boss at Old Trafford.


“Expectation is to go to every match and try to win, which is what we do and the matches we lost we fought until the last second,” Jose Mourinho answered the question.

“The matches we lost, if I’m not wrong, 2-1, 2-1, 1-0, so we really manage to fight in every match to try the best result.

“There is nothing more than that we can do, we can promise, we go to every match and do our best.”

His sentiments echo the comments he made five days ago, in which he declared his side’s willingness to fight to the very end of the Premier League title race. Manchester City have an 11 point cushion on United, and they are currently playing at an elite of all the elites level. It’s record shattering what City are doing right now, so United truly have their work cut out for them, if they are to even have a chance of trying to catch them. Jose Mourinho is saying all the right things today.

The next step is tomorrow night at the King Power Stadium, and here are all your match preview resources below:
