Jose Mourinho takes a dig at Manchester United for allegedly receiving several favours from the referees in the Premier League this season.
Jose Mourinho once again takes a dig at his own former club when asked about his side’s toothless attack against Manchester United in the Premier League clash a few days ago, also hint at Tottenham not receiving penalty against Bournemouth
“United’s 13 penalties is a help,” Mourinho added. Manchester United have scored nine of them. Controversy erupted last night when Bruno Fernandes stumbled upon Erzi Konsa and tripped down on the floor.

Referee Jonathan Moss awarded a penalty to Manchester United for it and even in the presence of VAR, it wasn’t overturned as the cameras spotted Konsa innocent.
This is not the first time Mourinho is speaking against his former club over the controversial penalties, even after his team’s match against Manchester United, he pointed out another instance related to penalties.
Jose Mourinho suggestions to improve VAR
Mourinho repeated his criticism of the referee, Paul Tierney, and the VAR official, Michael Oliver, for overlooking Kane’s penalty appeal at Bournemouth.
“It was too easy. I understood it and I was 50 or 60 metres distant” – and he said that referees ought to be made available afterwards to explain their decisions.
Oliver, the VAR official who ruled out what would have been a Kane equaliser in Spurs’ 3-1 defeat at Sheffield United last week, will referee Sunday’s north London derby.
“Mourinho said: “I think you [the media] should have access to them – to ask directly why. They are very important in the game. It would make things much more open, much more clear.”
“It would give the referee the opportunity to say: ‘Yes, I made a mistake – I feel sorry for that,’ or: ‘Yes, I had an incredible performance,’ or: ‘Yes, I was perfect.’”
