Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has blamed his attacking players for the 1-1 draw against Anderlecht in the Europa League on Thursday.
United dominated the quarter-final first leg in Belgium and were set for a win after Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored nine minutes before the end of first half.
The Belgian side improved after the break, though United remained the better side and should have gone on to win, but Leander Dendoncker got a header late in the game to secure a point for Anderlecht and Mourinho was left agitated by the performances of Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and substitute Anthony Martial.
“Marcus Rashford? I think he was the same as the others,” Mourinho said to BT Sport. “Jesse Lingard, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Anthony Martial – I thought they were all similar.
“Sloppy is the right word – in my poor English I cannot find a better word. We need to play more seriously.
“If you put together the performances of the four attacking players, you squeeze and squeeze and squeeze and you don’t get much juice out of it.
“We have to kill matches. We have chances, control, but we don’t score goals – you risk.
“[We had] good chances, lots of half chances that we didn’t transform into full chances because of bad decisions or bad control. There were very bad decisions in the last third.”
