Mourinho 'unhappy' with Feyenoord winner


Jose Mourinho was "unhappy" with Feyenoord's winner in Thursday's 1-0 Europa League victory over Manchester United.

Tonny Vilhena scored the only goal of the Group A opener after 79 minutes at the De Kuip Stadium, but Mourinho says Nicolai Jorgensen was in a offside position before he crossed to his team-mate to drill home a low shot past United goalkeeper David de Gea.

"Of course I'm unhappy. We lose the game in a moment we didn't deserve to," the Portuguese told BT Sport.

"The second half, the game was even. We were always in control. We were trying to win, they were trying not to lose. It is double unlucky because it was a clear offside.

"The second half was better than the first.

"In the Europa League, we are going to be the team everyone wants to beat."

Mourinho made eight changes to the side that went down 2-1 to Manchester City on Saturday, but the United boss refused to single out the players who had disappointed him in Rotterdam.

"I don't want to go in that direction. I don't want to personalise. Obviously, some played better than others. It was the first game for some," he said.

"We go back to a normal team without so many changes [against Watford on Sunday]."
