Jose Mourinho admits Arsene Wenger ‘unlucky’ during Old Trafford farewell



Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho admits his side were lucky to beat Arsenal on Sunday.Arsene Wenger’s final visit to Old Trafford with the Gunners ended in tragedy as Marouane Fellaini popped up in the closing stages to seal a 2-1 win for the home side.

Paul Pogba opened the scoring in the first half, before Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored against his former club to give the visitors hope until Fellaini’s late header.

The spotlight was all on Wenger for his Manchester farewell.

And Mourinho insisted his long-time foe didn’t deserve to lose in his final game at the Theatre of Dreams.

“I think if it was a draw it wouldn’t be unfair I think they did a good game, no pressure for them,” he said.
“But they had stability and quality, they defended well, the two young centre backs, did very well.

“And of course we were the team that tried to win and in the last 20 minutes tried to win but that’s normal.

“They had a very positive game but in the end we were a bit lucky to score in the last couple of minutes.

“But we were stronger in the last 20 mins, we changed our approach.”
Arsenal are still the only side in England’s top four divisions to have not picked up a single away point in 2018.

The north London outfit remain in sixth position but will be wary of Burnley attempting to close the gap on them in the final weeks of the season.

As for United, they now need just four points from their final three games to secure second-place in the Premier League.

Arsenal will now turn their attention to Thursday’s Europa League clash against Atletico Madrid.

If you want to win trophies, Leave Tottenham, Ibrahimovic tells Harry Kane




Former Manchester United striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has told Tottenham Hotspur star, Harry Kane to leave Spurs, which according to him is a normal club, if he want to win trophies.

Kane, who is currently sidelined due to injury, is expected to return to training in March.

The 25-year-old injured his ankle ligaments at the end of Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester United in a Premier League encounter last week after a collision with Phil Jones and Victor Lindelof.

Ibrahimovic, who has represented the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Inter Milan, believes the time has come for Kane to leave Tottenham in pursuit of silverware.

“When I was in England, I saw him [Kane] play, I think he is a good striker,” the La Galaxy striker told Bethard.

“He’s still developing, he’s doing good things. But I always say, playing in a big club, performing good is different from playing in – with all due respect to Tottenham – a ‘normal’ club.

“Performing there is a different situation, because I saw players do the same thing, but when they go to a big club something is different.

“I think he can make it. He just needs to make the move and people will remember you for what you win and. In the end, he needs to win.

“If he wants to win, I think he needs to change. I think Tottenham has a great team but they’re not at the level to win everything, even if they’ve got a fantastic coach.”
