Jose Mourinho: “One of Real Madrid goals in UEFA Super Cup was offside”

Mourinho has hailed his Manchester United players

Jose Mourinho has hailed his Manchester United players for an impressive performance against Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup.

However, the Special One believes that one of the opposition goals was offside.

The Red Devils succumbed to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Real in the Macedonian capital of Skopje, Casemiro and Isco putting the Spaniards ahead and Romelu Lukaku halving United’s deficit.

“I think we did well, I think we lost to one goal which shows the result was really short and one of their goals was an offside. With a good VAR system it would be 1-1 and extra-time,” Mourinho told BT Sport after the game.

“They could have scored more goals than they did, we could have scored more goals than we did. They had a period of dominance at middle of the first half and we had a period of dominance at middle of the second half.

“We were playing a team full of fantastic players, we discussed the result until almost the end. I say almost because with Cristiano Ronaldo coming on, because every time Ronaldo wanted a free kick the game was stopped. We gave them a fight but have reasons to leave optimistic and proud. Let’s go for Sunday.”
