Mourinho & Man City escape punishment over Manchester derby incidents

Adjust Comment Print

Drama ensued after championship side Bristol City overcame premier league giants Manchester United in the dying minutes of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night, when Korey Smith headed in past David De Gea in the last minute of the game to gift the hosts a win. Also in the first half we hit the post twice.

"They played brilliantly and fought like it was the game of their lives". And when I say intensity I mean not just physically but mentally. A attractive day for football.

Jose Mourinho congratulated Bristol City on their win but felt they were lucky to beat his side.

Only one lower league team (Bristol is in the Championship) has ever knocked out four top-flight sides in one League Cup campaign prior to today. "A little bit of wind and they fall", Mourinho had said, prompting the FA to ask the United manager to explain his comments.

Lee Johnson described the incident as special as he described victory over big clubs like Manchester United to be historic worth living in the memory of many generations. They won the game in our best moment, where we can't react, when everyone was waiting for our goal.

'THE PLAYERS WERE PROFESSIONAL" "The reality is that the ones [players] that were on the pitch were the ones that were not in the last match [against West Bromwich Albion] and are the ones that not going to be in the next match.

"In this club we know how to win, how to lose, so we lose saying congratulations to them and good luck for the semi-final". But I don't want to blame the players at all because I think they were professional - it wasn't a case of "we don't care about the game" or "we don't have responsibility" or "we don't have pride'".
