Jose Mourinho on West Ham loss: Manchester United boss has spoken on the team’s disappointing loss against West Ham United.
Manchester United suffered a shock 3-1 defeat to West Ham United in the Premier League earlier today. Jose Mourinho’s side looked uninspiring, and a change in formation backfired for Manchester United.
United conceded early in the game, and hardly threatened the West Ham defence in the first half. Marcus Rashford scored a terrific goal, but couldn’t see United through the line.
Mourinho, “I have no complaints about the player’s attitude. Snodgrass came to the pitch with an incredible attitude, you need that genuine humility.”

Jose Mourinho spoke to media after a disappointing defeat against West Ham United. He insisted that he has no problems with the players’ attitude.
“I think a team that comes with that mental fragility of the bad results and is losing 1-0 after 5 minutes isn’t the best way to start. It was an offside goal.

“We had a good reaction in the first half but an own goal makes 2-0. We know Iarmolenko is left footed and we weren’t aggressive or intense enough to close that shot.
“I have no complaints about the player’s attitude. Snodgrass came to the pitch with an incredible attitude, you need that genuine humility. There are certain qualities that you either have or you don’t have.”
Jose Mourinho’s side have only scored 10 points from seven Premier League matches, which is the joint lowest with David Moyes’ side in 2013/14. The goal difference for Manchester United stands at a meager -2.
In one lunchtime West Ham score 8% of the PL goals they’ve ever scored vs Manchester United and are now just 3 points behind them even though they lost their first four games of the season 🤷♂️
