Mourinho – “Man United Cannot Complain About VAR”

The Portuguese felt that his old side could have no complaints about the decision to send off Anthony Martial going against them in the first half.
Jose Mourinho suggested that Manchester Unitedwere not in a position to complain about their VAR misfortune after Tottenhamrouted the Red Devils 6-1 at Old Trafford.
The former Red Devils boss saw his Spurs side ride roughshod over a woeful performancefrom the home side, who suffered their joint-worst home Premier League defeat in history.
The hosts had snatched an almost immediate lead following a second-minute Bruno Fernandes penalty but the visitors responded in quick succession to take the lead well inside the opening quarter-hour thanks to efforts from Tanguy Ndombele and Son Heung-min.
United’s problems were compounded on the half-hour mark though when Anthony Martial was shown a red card for an apparent retaliation to receiving an elbow from Erik Lamela, in the wake of which Harry Kane piled on more misery with a third goal.
Controversy reigned from the decision, which saw Lamela escape without punishment despite clear replays suggesting he was the instigator, but speaking after the match, Mourinho suggested that his old side were not in a position to complain about the outcome given their own fair share of assists from VAR technology.
“I didn’t watch it. Maybe later I will. If someone can cry about the VAR decisions it is Tottenham and if someone cannot cry about VAR it is Manchester United for sure,” he told Sky Sports.
“I don’t know, the only thing I know is we played extremely well. I told my players that a good result here would be to win and we did that.”
The Portuguese was filled with effusive praise for his side’s rampant performance however, who doubled their early haul through second goals for Son and Kane plus an effort for Serge Aurier, hailing it as a “historical” result.
“Manchester United doesn’t lose many matches, [and] to lose by six is of course not every day,” he added.
