Mourinho Pleased Man United Lose from Barcelona
Manchester United surrendered 0-1 against FC Barcelona in the closing match of the pre-season tour in the United States. Man United’s manager Jose Mourinho took a positive side to his team’s defeat in a game at FedEx Field on Thursday (27/7/2017).
Man United has a good stock before meeting the Spanish league giants. The Red Devils won two victories, 2-0 respectively at city rivals Manchester City, then won on penalties over arch-rivals Real Madrid after both teams drew 1-1 for 90 minutes.
But when serving Barca, Man United could not score. Their goal was actually burglarized by a Brazilian striker who is now being talked about during the transfer market, Neymar, in the 31st minute.
After the match, Mourinho admitted picking the positive side of the result. He said that his troops must suffer defeat, let alone meet the giants of Europe.
“It’s important to lose in pre-season games, it’s not good for us to leave the United States without defeat,” Mourinho said as quoted from Manchester United’s official website.
“It would not be good to come home with only a win against teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City,” added the Portuguese manager, who was coach of Real Madrid.
Coach nicknamed The Special One is also considered, foster children show some good things and bad against Barcelona. Thus, he can know clearly what his team needs to maintain and improve.
