Mourinho: I knew we were in trouble with Jones penalty

first_imgJose Mourinho conceded he saw trouble coming when Manchester United got to Phil Jones in their 8-7 penalty shoot-out defeat to Derby County in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.United were disappointing once again as they scraped a 2-2 draw in 90 minutes, as Marouane Fellaini rescued the 10-man hosts – who had Sergio Romero sent off – deep into second-half stoppage time.Prior to Fellaini’s header, Jack Marriott had seemingly given Derby the win with an 85th-minute goal which added to Liverpool loanee Harry Wilson’s gorgeous free-kick, cancelling out Juan Mata’s early opener.

Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Penalties were the least Derby deserved and the first 15 spot-kicks were accurate, before Jones stepped up and saw his feeble effort easily saved by Scott Carson.As the shoot-out progressed towards defenders such as Jones and Eric Bailly, Mourinho acknowledged that he did not have a huge amount of faith.”I repeated what I said in the last match, that their [the opponent’s] dressing room was one with belief, because it [the match] was open and they played quite well,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.”We needed to go and kill the game, which we didn’t. We couldn’t be dominant in the beginning of the second half and only after the equaliser we had that reaction, which I don’t like. “Hey lads, we can go home now!”After 15 successful spot-kicks between both sides, Scott Carson decides enough is enough. pic.twitter.com/dwwUF8WFpb — Carabao Cup (@Carabao_Cup) September 25, 2018 “I prefer to be proactive, but then we go for it only after the 1-1 and after the red card we are in a little difficulty.”With one less [player] there was a reaction of pride, of a group that didn’t want to lose and tried until the last second.”Then penalties come and someone has to miss. When I saw [the penalties] going after the sixth, seventh [takers], I knew that we were going to be in trouble with Jones, with Eric. I knew we’d be in trouble again.”A prickly Mourinho then took offence to his interviewer suggesting he had been critical of United.”You think I criticise? I don’t think so,” Mourinho said. “That’s not criticising the team, I belong to the team.”I don’t think you are correct when you say I’m criticising. Do you want me to analyse or go away?”You want me to say we play a phenomenal match? The truth is the opponent in the second half started better than us and we weren’t able to match that intensity.”last_img read more

Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impa

first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires I’d like to see one more full year at the helm from Arians before placing him any higher on this pecking order. Arians was named 2012 AP Coach of the Year for his work as the interim head man in Chuck Pagano’s stead, which led to his prompt hiring in Arizona last offseason. He continued his brief — but impressive — head-coaching run by pushing the Cardinals to 10 wins, including a victory over the soon-to-be-world-champion Seattle Seahawks — in Seattle. Now entering his second season in Glendale after winning 10 games in 2013, expectations for Arians are higher. It won’t be easy as the Cardinals will need to fill voids at linebacker left by Karlos Dansby and Daryl Washington, but if running back Andre Ellington and wide receiver Michael Floyd can improve on their numbers from last season, the team has a lot of potential with Arians leading the way. center_img 0 Comments   Share   Top Stories Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians was the new coach on the block last season in the NFC West, taking over a team that went 5-11 in 2012 under Ken Whisenhunt. Arians led the Cardinals to seven wins in the last nine games of 2013, and now he’s garnering attention from the national media for his coaching abilities. Arians was recently ranked as the 13th best coach in the NFL by Elliot Harrison of NFL.com. He still finished below every other coach in the NFC West as Jeff Fisher placed one spot ahead of him at 12th, Pete Carroll ranked seventh and Jim Harbaugh came in third.last_img read more
