Jose Mourinho says Bristol City was just Lucky

After Bristol City knocking out All-stars filled Manchester United in the Quarter finals of the Carabao Cup today morning, United’s manager Jose Manager has already a thing to blame, Luck.

The Portuguese said that his Championship opponents were “lucky” to beat his managed EPL club.

“A team from the lower division won. A big day for them… They were ‘lucky’ but the result was a beautiful day for football…. they fought a lot to be lucky… Everyone was waiting for our goal so they were lucky. We hit the post twice.” He said.

The Robins reached the last four of the competition for the first time since 1988-89 with a well-deserved victory at Ashton Gate, going ahead in the second half through Joe Bryan’s thunderbolt into the top corner.

United had already hit the crossbar and post before Zlatan Ibrahimovic equalised with a deflected free-kick.

But Smith’s late cool strike sparked jubilant scenes as United became City’s fourth top-flight scalp in this year’s competition, after Watford, Stoke and Crystal Palace.

However, later Mourinho appreciated the performance of the underdogs that they put up through out the 90 minutes.
“But they played brilliantly, they fought like it was the game of their lives which probably it was.” The red devil’s manager added.

In the same game, Paul Pogba was returning to the Manchester United side after serving a three-game suspension. Mourinho, who has won the competition four times, made 10 changes to his starting line-up after beating West Brom on Sunday, but still included Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

After the game, jubilant Bristol City fans invaded the pitch at the final whistle to celebrate with match-winner Korey Smith. Mourinho rushed through the media zones so quickly that he delivered – bizarrely – his media conference when only one member of the written press was in attendance.

It has also been reported that before the game, Mourinho was good enough to spend more than 15 minutes giving managerial advice to the 36-year-old Robins head coach in private.
