Jose Mourinho has urged the Manchester United supporters to be more vocal in their next game. United are set to face Liverpool on 15th January at Old Trafford in a much-anticipated clash.
Manchester United defeated Hull City 2-0 as goals from Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini gave them an advantage in the EFL Cup semifinal. United won their ninth consecutive match for the first time since Alex Ferguson left.
Mourinho was clearly not satisfied with the Old Trafford atmosphere. Since his arrival, the Portuguese has been praising the supporters to stay behind them but has urged them to lift their spirit this time. United fans are known for their aggressiveness and passion towards the team and the gaffer wants them to rise to the occasion.
He said at the post-match press conference, “I always think that we are responsible for the fans’ participation in the game “It’s our responsibility.
“If we play very, very well or, if we play very enthusiastically, the fans come to the pitch and they play with us. When we don’t play so well or with so much emotion and intensity, it’s normal that the fans relax a little bit.
“We have amazing fans, I can only say fantastic things about them especially because you see the real fans when the moments are not good. When that has happened, we’ve had amazing fans behind us, pushing us and supporting us.
“So we have absolutely amazing fans, but what I feel is that Sunday is a special match for us and a special match for the Manchester United fans so my invitation is don’t come to the theatre, come to play and come to play with us.”
