Rafa Happy with Premier League Safety

  • Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho leaves the pitch after the final whistle of the English Premier League soccer match against West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford Manchester England Sunday

Second-place United dragged the title race out for at least another week by winning 3-2 at City last weekend, only to gift the trophy to City by losing to a team that is destined for relegation and had just one league win since August.

Manchester United won both the Europa League and League Cup in Mourinho's first campaign in charge last season.

"I think it's a unsafe week for us, because we come from a very good result, and also I think a few consecutive victories in the Premier League, so our moment is good, playing against a team that is still fighting, and they will fight until mathematically it's not possible".

"If I was in their position, I would be very upset if people said that Manchester City won the title because Manchester United lost to West Brom".

The title was finally City's after West Brom beat United at Old Trafford, meaning that Jose Mourinho's side can no longer catch City.

It's not fair, for them.

Former Premier League defender Danny Gabbidon has questioned Paul Pogba's mentality and believes his performances have nothing to do with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho, though, was quick to dampen talk that United had handed the title to City, insisting it is their dominance over the season that secured their coronation. A 16-point lead with five games to play and 93 goals scored represents an emphatic response, not that any doubts ever existed inside the City dressing room.

Mourinho's side have spent hundreds of millions on new players since his arrival-£89 million Paul Pogba and £75 million Romelu Lukaku among them-but neither could prevent a sorry home defeat to the Baggies on Sunday.

"I had to make a decision: one midfield player out to bring in Jesse Lingard". Mourimho asked. "I only know one criteria: It's the way you play".

"With my experience you don't titles with inconsistency. In my opinion it affected for sure some of the people that were too happy just with that", he said.

"Normally, we are going to have more of the ball and, normally, it's when we need somebody from the back to add extra technical quality in the middle of the back [four]". Said row, according to the BBC, saw milk and water thrown at Mourinho after he complained over what he deemed excessive celebrations in the away dressing room.

"We always gave West Brom the opportunity to be solid, compact, and with their huge physical strong players, they always had time to organise themselves".
