Jose Mourinho Digs At ‘Very Quiet’ Man Utd Supporters After Leicester Win

Jose Mourinho had a dig at Manchester United’s home support after his side beat Leicester to stay top of the Premier League.

Second-half goals from Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini made it three wins from three for United and opened a two-point lead in the early-season table.

A crowd of 75,021 was inside Old Trafford to see United’s good start continue, but Mourinho afterwards claimed it took Rashford’s opener to wake the stadium.

He said: “I didn’t see the first goal. I was speaking with Jesse Lingard because Lingard was going to be the next player to come on.

“I saw the ball in the net and all the guys jumping around. It was the first time I saw the crowd. They were very quiet.

“It was easy to know that was a goal because it was the first time I really understood the stadium was full.”

Leicester threatened occasionally on the break with the game goalless but lacked the cutting edge that yielded three goals in an opening-day defeat at Arsenal.

And Mourinho was quick to draw a comparison between the Gunners’ handling of Jamie Vardy and the way his own side kept the England striker quiet.

“Vardy is a very dangerous player,” he said. “I would say he is one of the most dangerous players in the Premier League. Was he dangerous today? No. Why? Because we played so well to control them.

“Were Leicester very dangerous against Arsenal? Yes. I watched the match many times. Were they dangerous against us? No. Why? Because of us. So we had a very good and solid performance.”
