Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho has hailed his side after they emerged victorious against Leicester City on Saturday at Old Trafford, thrashing the defending champions 4-1.
Speaker afterwards, Mourinho said:
“It was a very good performance and result. It is not easy against them and not easy to win in the style that we did.
“In the second half it was more about control – we wanted a little bit more – but Ranieri was very good to read his options and keep some balance. It was a choice of losing heavily or with some control over the scoreline.
“Today we had intensity movement and dynamism. To be back home and beat the champions is good. Last season we couldn’t beat them and this season we have beaten them twice already.
“Wayne Rooney is a big player for me, United and this country. he is my man, I trust him completely. He is happy.
“We have lost six points in the Premier League. We have four victories which is really important. Today it is about the security and the happiness of the fans, I don’t know when the last time that they had such a scoreline at half time.”
