Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes that the Red Devils were very lucky to record a win in their away league meeting with Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.

Mourinho made this known while he was giving his post-match reaction at the end of the Matchweek 11 game at the Vitality Stadium.

According to the Portuguese tactician, his side could have been 6-2 down at halftime against the Cherries.

Manchester United recovered from a bad start to score a late goal and record a morale-boosting victory away from home.

The hosts took an early lead in the 11th minute through the in-form Callum Wilson off an assist from Junior Stanislas.

It was his third league goal in two games following his brace in last weekend’s 3-0 victory over Fulham at the Craven Cottage.

It was his 50th goal in the colours of Bournemouth.

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial dragged his side level in the 35th minute.

The French international profited off a cutback from Chilean international star Alexis Sanchez for his fifth league goal in the last four games.

Nathaniel Clyne

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been attacked for a single transfer decision where he allowed Nathaniel Clyne to leave the club to English Premier League side Bournemouth on loan.

The former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp who attacked the German boss is of the opinion that Nathaniel Clyne should have remained at the club as he would be needed at the course of the season.

Nathaniel Clyne was bedeviled by the injury he suffered which ensured that he was favoured behind Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez which makes him a bench player in the team.

Despite all of these, the football legend still holds the opinion that Klopp made a wrong decision to have let go of the England international knowing that he has got some injury situations as well as a number of games to play.

He noted that Nathaniel Clyne would have played the right full-back position in the Saturday’s game against Crystal Palace which was mounted by James Milner.

However, Nathaniel Clyne is desperate to secure more playing time which is the reason why he opted to join the Premier League side where he can be able to continue his development and progress.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are seven points clear at the top in the league table.

Former Manchester United boss has lamented his inability to have Egyptian international Mohamed Salah established under him when he was in charge at the Stamford Bridge.

The former United boss had signed Mohamed Salah to the Stamford Bridge but was unable to make good use of him before he left to the Italian Serie A outfit AS Roma and now at the Merseyside club Liverpool.

Last season was one of the best of Mohamed Salah’s football career as he helped the Reds team to reach the Champions League finals in addition to finishing second in the Premier League last season with his goals.

This season alone, Mohamed Salah has not changed as he has now scored a total of 17 goals and handed 8 assists in the 30 games under his belt which makes him one of the best the English League can boast of at the moment.

However, the former Chelsea boss confessed that he was unable to get the best from the player as he wished that Mohamed Salah had given this best under him at the Stamford Bridge.

With his feat and impressive performance, Mohamed Salah now has a release clause of about £150 million in his contract with the Reds which is expected to end in 2023.

Jose Mourinho

Ex-Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has slammed the club following his tumultuous time when he was with the three-time European champions.

Mourinho aimed a transfer dig at the club while he was on popular media channel BeIN Sports for the Asian Cup on Saturday.

The Portuguese tactician said that he was not properly backed in the transfer market while he was the Manchester United manager.

Jose Mourinho further gave examples of managers, like Pep Guardiola at Manchester City and Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool, who have been fully backed to sign players by their respective clubs.

Jose Mourinho also stated that he has already rejected three offers to return to the sidelines since he was dismissed as the Manchester United manager last month.

Earlier reports revealed that Mourinho turned down a job offer from Portuguese club Benfica.

Jose Mourinho had a frosty relationship with club chief executive Ed Woodward who failed to back him on transfers.

He eventually lost his job last month after a disastrous start to this campaign.

Mourinho was replaced by former club striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the Norwegian has justified that decision by making a perfect start to his career as a manager at the Theatre of Dreams.

For the German boss, he has not won a title in his three years reign at the Anfield and he will be looking forward to breaking that deadlock this season having come close last season with a second place in the Premier league and also a defeat in the Champions League finals.
