Manchester United masters in complications


Jose Mourinho saw his side suffer a shocking 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford to bottom placed West Brom, thereby handing the title to Manchester City.

"We were deservedly punished," he told Sky Sports. "We were masters in complication. Everything was complicated. Players didn't want to or didn't play simple. Everything was slow. Everyone was one more touch, one more trick, one more flick, one more turn.

"I don't think we deserved to lose, but we gave them the opportunity to win the match by being solid in defence and sniffing a chance in attack."

Mourinho accused his players of not concentrating on the game as a result of their win against City.

"I won eight titles and I'm not in the moon because I won against Manchester City, a match that is just three points," he said. "I saw lots of people in the moon because we won against Manchester City."

Mourinho also claimed that it was not United's loss that had given the title to City, saying: "Manchester City won the title because they won more points than everybody else, because yesterday they won against Tottenham, because during the season they lost only two matches."
