Mourinho: United Deserved FA Cup Semis Win Over Spurs, Not Criticism

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has praised his players for their performance in Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup semi-final win against Tottenham Hotspur, but insists his side does not deserve the too much criticism from people.

The Red Devils fell behind to a Dele Alli strike in the 11th minute but rallied back through goals from Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera.

“We deserve it. If we split the match into periods we were the best team for many of these periods. Even when they had the ball when we were winning we were totally in control,” the Portuguese stated during his post match conference.

“We lost control after the 1-0. At half-time we spoke – we came back late for the second half because we spoke a lot – and organised ourselves. When you play away from home the supporters were phenomenal.

“We should ask ourselves why there is too many critics on all of us? We can finish second with six more points. To do that with all the fantastic teams we play against will be an achievement for a club that couldn’t do it for a few years now.

“And it will be a fourth final in three years. So, maybe too much criticism.”

United will face either Chelsea or Southampton as they try to clinch their 13th FA Cup crown.
