Jose Mourinho gives brief but bizarre post-match interview after Man United win

Portuguese manager was in his usual abrupt mood with the media

Jose Mourinho’s first season with Manchester United is coming to an end.

And has it been a successful one?

…no, not really

…no, not really

Mourinho has lead the Red Devils to a fairly uninspiring sixth-place finish in the Premier League, seven points off the top four places.

But with a Europa League final still to be played, United could still qualify for next season’s Champions League if they beat Dutch giants Ajax.

And it seems that Mourinho is concentrating fully on Wednesday’s final, and couldn’t even spare a moment to talk to journalists after Sunday’s win against Crystal Palace.

Things start off well, with Mourinho pretending to care

Cornered by United’s in-house channel MUTV, the always-sunny 54-year-old just wanted to go home when asked about the club’s positive result on the final day of the season.

“Don’t ask me too many things because now I am in a final,” he said.

“Let me go home, I am in a final now.”

The reporter tried in vain to get something out of the manager, asking him:”Do you know your team?”

But Mourinho replied: “I know, but let me go. I am in a final now.”

Oh, see you then. 

Meanwhile, on the pitch, United ran-out 2-0 winners against Crystal Palace in the season finale, with Mourinho handing out debuts to Joel Pereira, Demetri Mitchell, Scott McTominay and Josh Harrop.

He also introduced 16-year-old Angel Gomes as a late substitute, who became the fourth-youngest player in United’s history.
