Bournemouth vs Manchester United: Mourinho speaks on Pogba’s performance, 2-0 win


Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has praised his players after their 2-0 win over Bournemouth on Wednesday night.

Chris Smalling opened scoring in the first half, before United held off the hosts’ resistance and Lukaku added the second with 20 minutes left.

“The players were good. I think good team performance, professional, controlled, good effort, desire to play, to score, desire to cope with the defensive responsibilities.

“Everything was different, it was faster, simple. I’m happy the result was also good, the players can have that positive feeling. Every player on the pitch was positive,” Mourinho said after the game.

The Portuguese also praised midfielder Paul Pogba, who put in a very impressive performance on the night and laid on the assist for Lukaku.

“I’m not very good on man of the match. Especially because i’m a team manager, but he played very well.

“Against City he was phenomenal but today he was very very good, so good choice,” Mourinho added.
