Manchester United Jose Mourinho gave positive remarks regarding Ander Herrera’s comments after their shocking loss at Huddersfield Town, insisting they showed, “dignity” and “intelligence.”
The Spanish midfielder gave an honest response regarding United’s 2-1 Premier League defeat to Huddersfield who just got newly promoted, which also led for him to question his team’s mentality and passion.
Reports circulated that Mourinho got disappointed over Herrera and may be in danger of having a fall out with the manager.
On the contrary, Mourinho praised Herrera over his honesty ahead of Saturday’s visit of Tottenham to Old Trafford.
“I was surprised but I was happy about his words because it is not easy for the players to recognise and admit [why they lost],” said Mourinho.
“I was happy because it shows dignity, character and intelligence to know the reason why we lost the match.
“So contrary to some imaginary sources that tell you everything we do here, I can promise you that since that match I didn’t speak one single second about the match, because [there’s] no need.”
