Mourinho FUMES at his Manchester United flops after their Fenerbahce defeat

United fell behind after just 64 seconds following Moussa Sow’s superb overhead kick, while Jeremain Lens doubled Fenerbahce’s advantage with a free-kick in the second half.

Wayne Rooney’s stunning strike gave a late lifeline to United, but Mourinho was furious with his side’s slow start to the match and has demanded a change in mentality.

‘I think they deserved to win,’ Mourinho told BT Sport.

‘Football is not just about quality, it’s about effort, commitment, playing to the limits, give everything, a team that concedes a goal after two minutes is not ready, not mentally prepared, not focused, not concentrated.

‘It’s their game, it’s out fault that we let them be in that situation. After their second goal we had a reaction probably we could have got a different result but I felt we didn’t deserve more.

‘Football is 90 mins, to be played at the maximum of your desire, intensity concentration.

‘Our problems started in our global attitude – they were playing in the Champions League final, we were playing in a summer friendly.’
