Mourinho aims dig at Man Utd fans after beating Spurs

Jose Mourinho has aimed another dig at the club fans following his Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-final.

Tottenham started the stronger side at Wembley and were in front after just 11 minutes as Dele Alli converted from Christian Eriksen’s cross.

But United were level by the break through Alexis Sanchez after a cross from Paul Pogba.

Mourinho, meanwhile, has criticised United’s fans on several occasions this campaign, with the most recent being the harsh reaction from fans to decisions made by Scott McTominay during matches.

‘I think you don’t get strong with happiness in negative moments, with ‘let it go because we just lost football match’,’ Mourinho told MUTV.

‘I think you grow up with criticism and pressure an intense work mentally and physical and I think we are growing up and two very good performances this week using almost every player of the squad.

‘Everyone is really happy to go back to Manchester with a place in the final.

‘That’s the only way to play for big clubs (with a strong mentality), to play in big clubs you have to have incredible talent, or good talent with incredible mentality, if you don’t have quality you cannot play for a big club, if you don’t have mentality you cannot do it.

‘So I think we are trying to find this balance of a group with quality but with that mental toughness.

‘I think we need a bit more from Old Trafford and looking to the next season, its not possible to do it without a better Old Trafford.’
