Mourinho Slams Chelsea's Style of Play

Jose Mourinho congratulated Chelsea for their 1-0 victory over Manchester United in the FA Cup final but believes he would be heavily criticised for winning in such a defensive manner.

Eden Hazard dazzled during the early stages and the Belgium forward won and converted a 22nd-minute penalty.

United pushed Chelsea back after the break and Paul Pogba missed a glorious chance eight minutes from time.

“I congratulated them because they won but I do not think they deserved to win,” he told BBC Sport.

“I congratulate them because I am a sportsman. They scored one more goal than us and they get the cup, and I have to do what my job asks me to do. I am Manchester United manager and I have to be respectful.

“I think we deserved to win, we were the best team. But that’s football.

“I’m quite curious to know what people say and people will write because I can imagine if my team played how Chelsea did what people will say.”
