Victor Lindelof, Juan Mata Cited as Jose Mourinho Explains United Total Team Failure

Victor Lindelof had his first true experience in the English Premier League today, and it did not go well; at all. Manchester United lost at Huddersfield Town A.F.C. 2-1, and the stunning loss became an international hot topic of discussion.

After the game, United midfielder Ander Herrera made some comments about his team that greatly upset manager Jose Mourinho. As for the manager himself he called out his players for having a poor attitude.

The first signing of the summer transfer window, he made a £30.7 million move from Benfica, but is yet to find his place and groove within the team. Mourinho refused to single out Lindelof, or midfielder Juan Mata, but he did cite both players and he insisted that United’s dreadful first-half was so awful that anyone could have been named for making a crucial error.

“You like individualization of the mistake and the defeat. I think it is very unfair,” Mourinho said. “The mistakes, Lindelof for the second goal and Mata for the first goal, belong in the context.”

“If you play an amazing game and lose to an individual mistake, yes, you point the finger. That is not the case. In the first half I was waiting for it. It was Mata and Victor.

“It could be another.”

Mourinho has thrown a player or two under the bus in his time- that’s well documented. So credit him for not doing so this time.
