Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho explains Alexis Sanchez omission

Manchester United v Brighton & Hove Albion

Manchester United v Brighton & Hove Albion

Meanwhile, Ashley Young told MUTV that United's performance against Brighton wasn't acceptable. It's also signed for the departure of some of the players from the dressing room.

Brighton & Hove Albion made certain of another season of Premier League football thanks to a famous 1-0 victory over a below-par Manchester United at the Amex Stadium.

Mourinho has been regularly quizzed this season about why Martial and Rashford were not starting more games. "It seems that it wasn't important for some of play players".

United secured a top-four finish by beating Arsenal 2-1 last weekend, and Brighton's more desparate need for the points shone through.

"He brought Alexis Sanchez into the club and look at what's happened to them since Alexis Sanchez came in". He's going to make some big changes in that changing room. I haven't got words for it. They were absolutely terrible tonight, terrible.

"It was not good enough", declared a straight-talking Mourinho.

Mat Ryan has guaranteed at least one Australian will be in the Premier League next season, with Brighton ensured their survival by beating Manchester United. "He's lost faith in some of them". "But that's what we go", he said.

Accordingly, the Portuguese tactician called Rashford over to the touchline, as Shreeves said: "Jose Mourinho is furious at Marcus Rashford". He even showed his anger and disbelief during the post-match press conference.




The German forward got on the end of a sharp Jose Izquierdo cross from the left and the ball crossed the line before Marcus Rojo's desperate attempt to keep it out.

"Not good enough, because the players that replaced others didn't perform at a good level and when individuals don't perform at a good level, it's hard for the team to perform at a good level".

Both players were understood to be frustrated at their lack of playing time in recent weeks but their performance did not endear them to Mourinho.

"So it's a relief that we've done it now, but I'm also really proud of a group of players".

"We had the target to get the points to finish second, and they showed that for them it is more important than for us to finish second".

When we started the season, I wouldn't say we were scared but we didn't know how to win games.

"You have the answer now when you ask 'why always Lukaku? Probably we aren't as good individually as people think we are", he explained.

"They are fresher than others that played so many matches in the season, to play against a team that is strong at home and intense".
