He even picked up a Manchester United scarf thrown by one of the fans.

Manchester United secured their best finish since the Ferguson era after a second-placed finish at the end of the 2017-18 Premier League season.

"Even when we were 3-0 down it was unbelievable".

After making a point of very deliberately applauding the fans after the final whistle, Mourinho made more attempts at deflection in his post-match press conference - which ended with the United manager throwing a bit of a wobbler and walking out. But the scale of the defeat was implicit with Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino recording his first goal at Old Trafford in four EPL visits, and his first win.

Shaw will surely get another chance to start this weekend after another bright United display, while an England recall when Gareth Southgate names his first squad since the World Cup on Thursday would be deserved.

As he got up to leave, Mourinho told a journalist: "Respect!"

Now in his third season at Old Trafford, United might have already seen the best Mourinho has to offer.


"Everyone in the dressing room is really sad, especially after the first half we had and especially a big thank you to the fans for the way they supported us, even when we were down 3-0, was incredible". Three Premierships. I won more Premierships alone than the other 19 managers together.

Despite the result, Mourinho said "by strategy we didn't lose, tactically we didn't lose, but we lost the game".

"I'm sure with the quality of players he will have a game plan to push for the title". Many things can happen.

Last season's second-place finish was United's highest league position in the past five years and numerous club's fans have laid the blame for the relative under-achievement at the door of executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

Following that defeat to Sevilla, Mourinho went on his now infamous 12-minute "football heritage" rant and his bad mood from last season has seemingly carried over into the new campaign. "We have crated many opportunities, as in most of our matches, so I feel frustrated", Mourinho said.

"The first goal was a real blow, we didn't understand why, because we had the game in hand".

Mourinho now is in his third season at Manchester United and, based on the early results in this year's Premier League, the third-year cratering we've come to expect from the Portuguese manager has begun once again.
