Mourinho insists: “I congratulate Chelsea but Man United deserved to win”

José Mourinho insisted his side was the one who had to lift the FA Cup today.

The Manchester United manager reckons that pundits would have destroyed him if his team had played like Chelsea did today:

“I think we deserved to win, we were the best team but that’s football. I am curious to see what people say what you write because if my team played like Chelsea did I can’t imagine what you will say.

“My players gave absolutely everything, it was hard to play without Lukaku against a team who defends with nine players. We tried everything, the defeat hurts but I go home with the feeling we gave everything.

“We know this is how they play, they are not stupid, they know our team without Lukaku, Fellaini we don’t have presence so they knew they’d dominate direct football.

“They were a huge block of compact players, Courtois has a couple of saves, we had bad luck with some important balls in the box. For me the image of the game is David De Gea didn’t touch the ball, he touched the ball out of the net.

“I congratulate them.”
