Jose Mourinho talks about Benfica win and Champions League preparations

Manchester United are almost near the knock out stages of the Champions League after they won 2-0 against Benfica.

United just need one more point from the remaining two games they have to secure their place in the last 16.

Jose Mourinho’s side will battle Chelsea at the weekend and he has made six changes when they played against Spurs.

One controversial discussion with Mourinho during the game, however, was when he decided to make Daley Blind take the penalty instead of Romelu Lukaku.

“I don’t understand why everyone asks me the same,” Mourinho complained.

“I am paid to take decisions good or bad in the first-half the decision was bad because the player I chose to take the penalty missed. In the second-half, I made another decision and I don’t see the drama.

“The penalty taker for this match was Martial, he took in the first half- and missed he was not even on the pitch when the second one was [given]. And then I have a decision to make.

“Romelu wants to take, he has the personality to take the responsibility, Herrera was the same, but my decision based on what we did in training in the past couple of days was Blind. The players respected my decision and that is it, end of story.”

“I think they did a good game,” Mourinho added. “It was difficult for us, it was difficult for Benfica as well and I don’t change my opinion but when the opposition makes changes that means the game is getting complicated, we had some possession and I had to change Mata for Herrera.

“The game was quite balanced and stretched so I had to change on the left as well because Douglas and Ruben were yellow-carded and the opposition made us change the game, we won but I think the result is not a fair one.”
