However, Mourinho may face more hurdle in the race to sign the 27-year-old Koulibaly, as Man United chiefs may turn down the massive fees for a player.

"I refuse to say that", said the United boss.

"You must play with brain and also with heart and I think there was not enough heart", said Mourinho. "And let me be clear when I say maturity, I mean maturity on a personal level".

"I am what I am and every individual is different individual", he said.

The Swede was one of the better players on a dire afternoon, showing impressive composure on the ball bringing play out from the back.

"If you feel pressure where people come to support, stay and watch on TV".

"But I think behind closed doors, in the changing room, embarrass them in front of the team".

"So, yeah, of course, we're more focused on tomorrow". "The information I have from the club and club contacts with the police is that things are going to be much better than the last time, but if it isn't better I walk". "I never feel pressure at home". Young Boys is not a crucial game, but I want to play like it is the last chance to qualify. We have to win, that's the way I want to play.


"I don't want the team to be waiting, not to be reactive but proactive". Probably you thought Jose told them to start slow. "I want the team to start strong to have a go immediately and it's a bit frustrating".

Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof is expected to miss about a month due to a thigh injury he picked up against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

"If we can have Victor available for that period, it will be good". "Our midfield is not normally that aggressive in the fight for second balls".

Palace threatened to leave the stadium with all three points for the first time since 1989, but had to make do with a point as United failed to get the win it desperately needed to kickstart its campaign.

Victor Lindelof was one United player to earn praise from Mourinho, the Sweden star battling through the match despite carrying a knock from global duty. "Victor has a proper injury".

"There are games that are special and not just one more: this was a special game, the first of eight Premier League games until the end of December and it was a game we need to win and my feeling is that it was not enough from the heart".
