What happened was we call the unpredictable of football and it happened to us but I don’t think it happens many many times when you play so well normally you lose matches and points when you don’t play well. We played so well, we played so creative, we created so many chances but in football, you have to score the goals and the chances are not enough. “We have no time but even with time, I don’t think it’s anything to do with that. I don’t think Lingard will miss many chances with an open goal. I don’t think Martial finish many [like that]. I don’t think three-on-one or one-on-one with the ‘keeper we miss many.” Mourinho told in his brief, not an easy one because is a first Christmas without my father but insisted it was a ‘pleasure’ to compete in the traditional Boxing Day fixture. Mourinho admitted this Christmas had been a tough time for him personally is the first Christmas without my father,” he told in his interview . “And I think that’s the most difficult one, apart from that everybody is healthy and we are adapted to the reality of English football. “This profile [no winter break] which has the negative side and also the positive side, which is for me the Boxing Day match, I do it with pleasure. I do it thinking families are coming, people live it, around the world, families at home, they love football so I feel we are giving something people love and the positive side of it is that good feeling. “In this moment also in England, you have teams with six players to rest, to enjoy Christmas, to do everything they used to do in continental football, so it’s changing.”But honestly I think about the positive side of it and I like that, I have friends in different parts of the world who enjoy English football especially in this period because we give people the only football they have to watch. “The ones who play after tomorrow [Boxing Day] – that extra day means a lot because it means they are not working today, can be back to work tomorrow and the problem I see here is the difference between some teams.Mourinho also reaffirmed his belief that United have been disadvantaged by the fixture scheduling this Christmas. “But what I call the December injuries in English football are arriving, some players are leaving the pitch after 15 or 20 minutes, some others don’t resist on the 90, depends on many factors but we open the door for the December injuries.”]]>
