Jose Mourinho reflected on his side’s performance against Manchester United, here is what he had to say:
” We need our points, but we know that if our points are against the second or the third, it helps us to be in a better position. Today we won 3 points and our opponent lost 3 points so this is even more important but we are focused on our game. We know that we have six matches to play and we know that we needed points”
What did you make of that first half hour of the game?
“It was the game we wanted, the only thing we couldn’t do was to kill the game by scoring a second goal from the chances we had. We know that they pass the ball very well so we decided to play the ball in best tactical way and the game was what we wanted”
“When you decide to play the game strategically, we don’t care about stats, we play for the points. We had also a big heart, we fought, people focused on their jobs, all the defensive set pieces were on our pockets. I know what can people think but football is about talent.”
What about the challenge of John Terry on Falcao?
“Very fair, similar challenges of Smalling on Didier, strong and physical football. We played Hazard and Oscar and we knew there would be this kind of combination”
Can you afford to get excited now despite winning so many trophies?
“No I keep saying the same, I want to be champions and if it is in the last game, it would be in the last game. We still have matches to go and we’re waiting for Diego and few other players to get back but we need to keep going, wait and see”
