  • Mourinho slams United as they hand title to City

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho: I knew that sooner or later they would be champions and if I was in their position I would be very upset if somebody said that they won the title because Manchester United lost against West Bromwich Albion.

A second half headed goal from Jay Rodriguez gave West Brom the surprise win and handed Manchester City the Premier League title.

The Portuguese has suggested at regular intervals throughout the 2017-18 campaign that the Red Devils do not get the recognition they deserve. It is hard to speak about Manchester City for me, but what Pep Guardiola has done is awesome; to win the title with the football he plays is great. "City won the title because they won more points than everyone else, not. because United did not win, it is not fair on them".

"I trust in my work, that is for sure - I have no reason not to trust", he said.

Thierry Henry: I am not surprised with what Pep has done in this league and past year, I was one of the people saying stop having a go at the man because that's how he plays.

I don't know if I was the first or if I was the second or the third, but I congratulated them face-to-face when I had the chance to do it. "I know myself. It just feels right".

Pogba was substituted after 57 minutes of United's defeat and Mourinho did not make any attempt to hide his unhappiness with the team's performance and the inconsistency of his most expensive player.


He added: "You can win the Champions League in seven games, the league is 10 months".

West Brom had Ben Foster to thank for two fine saves from Romelu Lukaku either side of half-time before Jay Rodriguez scored the victor 18 minutes from time.

If boss Jose Mourinho wants to make changes then he has his substitutes, with a group including Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford available.

Here's what pundits, managers and players have said after City won the league...

"We were masters in complication, everything was complicated", Mourinho said during his post-match interview. Everything was slow. Everyone was one more touch, one more trick, one more flick, one more turn.

"When we have the ball, we want to run with the ball, we want to dribble, and everything was complicated and probably in our best period where we were moving the ball better and the team was thinking faster and the team had more width was when they scored".
