Mourinho explains shut-up gesture after Manchester United vs Tottenham

Mauricio Pochettino Alex Ferguson

French forward, 21, scored the late victor at Old Trafford, his fourth goal off the bench this season, before handing his boss the ultimatum.

A smattering of jeers had greeted Mourinho's decision to bring on Martial in place of Marcus Rashford, but the change paid dividends as United belatedly showed a cutting edge.

'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'.

"I don't want to be on the bench".

"Maybe it was a lucky shot but his desire was good and the goal gives us two more points than 0-0".

United got what they played for at Liverpool - a goalless draw - but the setback at the John Smith's Stadium has left Mourinho and his players likely having to find a way of claiming a minimum of four points from games against Spurs and Chelsea just to stay in contention with City.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Mourinho said: "Sometimes he starts the match and his contribution is good but he doesn't score".

"I don't understand some reactions when people question "are they Red Devils"?" Our two strikers were up against unbelievable central defenders today, some of the best in Europe.

"Martial scores with a bad shot, but the bad shots can be the most attractive".

'But Rashford played good, too. He can do better between the lines and I also wanted him to work off Lukaku.

'I was happy because it shows dignity, character and intelligence to know the reason why we lost the match.
