Jose Mourinho has slammed a rack of water bottles into the ground in an expression of “relief” after Manchester United snatched a last-gasp win to reach the Champions League last 16.

The Portuguese then proceeded to remind his “lovers” of his enviable continental record.
Young Boys appeared set to frustrate, and perhaps even embarrass, United at Old Trafford.

But, not for the first time this season, Mourinho’s men dug deep and scored a late winner, with Marouane Fellaini firing home to secure a 1-0 victory. The United manager kicked a water bottle rack and threw another into the ground in celebration at a goal that means they head to Valencia next month with progress assured after the Spaniards lost at Juventus.

“Relief,” Mourinho said of his celebrations. “Frustration before that and relief with the goal.

“I think we didn’t play for that, we didn’t play for 0-0. We didn’t play to be in trouble until the last minute, so frustration.

“I was not unhappy with the players. Not at all.” United were grateful for the right hand of goalkeeper David de Gea, who made a truly remarkable second-half save from a deflected Ulisses Garcia strike, clawing the ball off the line at full stretch.

“I have to reunite the goal we scored with David De Gea’s save. I think without David’s save, no winning goal,” Mourinho said.
Mourinho then took a swipe at his critics.

“Let me send a message to my lovers and say that I played Champions League for 14 years and I qualified 14 times,” he said.

“And the two years where I didn’t play Champions League, I won the Europa League twice, so in 16 years, 14 times I qualify and twice I play Europa League and I won.

“Just a little curiosity for my lovers and the lovers of the stats.” Mourinho was irritated by questions about his team selection, having dropped Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku to the bench while Alexis Sanchez missed out entirely.

“No, Sanchez is not injured but it’s quite curious because you always speak about the ones that are not playing,” the United boss said.

“Tonight, you had Marcus Rashford playing as a nine — that’s what you want, that’s what you ask for all the time and you had.

“So, don’t speak about Lukaku and you tell me Lukaku doesn’t score a goal at Old Trafford since March.

“And then you ask, ‘Why is he not playing?’”
