Mourinho tears into Man Utd after shock loss

Huddersfield, UK: Jose Mourinho launched a withering verbal attack on his Manchester United players following their surprise Premier League defeat at Huddersfield Town and confessed he was shocked by their lacklustre performance.
United were beaten for the first time this season, while promoted Huddersfield’s 2-1 win marked their first top-flight victory over their illustrious visitors since 1952.
Huddersfield’s goals, scored by Aaron Mooy and Laurent Depoitre, were a direct result of disastrous mistakes by United’s Juan Mata and Victor Lindelof.
“In the first half I was waiting for it,” said Mourinho, whose side replied through substitute Marcus Rashford.
“It was Mata and Victor, but it could have been another because the attitude was really poor.
“When I lose matches, I like to lose because the opponent was better, had more quality. When you lose because of attitude, that is really bad.
“I heard Ander Herrera in an interview saying the attitude and desire was poor. Oh my God.
“When a player says that and a player feels that, I think they should then all go to the press conference and explain why, because I cannot explain that.”
Mourinho’s team had only conceded two league goals, in a 2-2 draw at Stoke City in early September, before Saturday’s visit to the John Smith’s Stadium.
