Video: Jose Mourinho Makes Funny Alphabet Mistake in Post-Match Interview

Jose Mourinho made a funny alphabet mistake after Manchester United‘s win over Middlesbrough.

The Old Trafford boss took his much-changed side to the Riverside this afternoon hoping to get three points to continue their pursuit of the top four.

And that’s exactly what they got – putting in an assured performance to win 3-1.

After watching Marouane Fellaini, Jesse Lingard and Antonio Valencia get the goals to render Rudy Gested’s strike meaningless, Mourinho spoke to BT Sport in his post-match interview and provided a comedy moment when he forgot the order of the alphabet.

He was used it as an analogy to prove his side can do the job when not always at full strength or at the top of their game:

It’s L, M, N, O, P, Jose!

Mourinho looked a lot happier post-match, though, than he did before the game.

Before kick-off, he was keen on pressing home just how difficult United’s recent fixture schedule has been on his players.

Paul Pogba picked up an injury in the midweek win over Rostov, while Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcos Rojo struggled with fitness and Zlatan Ibrahimovic was suspended.

But it didn’t matter for United as they comfortably saw off Middlesbrough to take all three points.
