Jose Mourinho Hails Manchester United Performance v Arsenal In Motivational Instagram Post

Jose Mourinho Hails Manchester United Performance v Arsenal In Motivational Instagram Post

Jose Mourinho has hailed Manchester United‘s draw with Arsenal a “great performance but a bad result”.

United looked set to take all three points from the Gunners at Old Trafford before Juan Mata’s opener was cancelled out by a late Olivier Giroud header.

Positive Jose

It prompted Mourinho to brand his side the “unluckiest” in the Premier League.

But following the draw with their fierce rivals, which saw Ander Herrera take a lot of the plaudits from fans, Mourinho seemed resilient that the draw marked a turning point in their season.

And he took to Instagram with a motivational post for the supporters.

Special friend

The Portuguese coach revealed that he received a phone call from Diego Maradona after the match.

Describing the Argentinian legend as “King Diego,” Mourinho thanked the Napoli legend before turning his attention to the week ahead.

He said: “After a great performance but a bad result I had a phone call from King Diego.. gracias Amigo, With you, my family, my other friends, my players and United is amazing.

“Supporters… Monday I will be ready again!!!”

Mourinho’s side are back in European action on Thursday night as they host Feyenoord in the Europa League.

A win would see them jump above their Dutch rivals in Group A.
