EFL Cup semis berth hugely satisfying for Man United manager Mourinho

IANS  |  Manchester 

Manchester United's resounding 4-1 win against West Ham United in the English Football League (EFL) Cup quarter-final gave manager Jose Mourinho "real happiness".

Mourinho has been under pressure after the recent spate of underwhelming results in the English Premier League.

"We won comfortably with beautiful, attacking football. Goals plus performance equals real happiness," Mourinho told Man United's official website after the match on Wednesday.

The game saw Ztalan Ibrahimovic and Anthony Martial score braces to help the side reach the semi-finals.

"I'm pleased with the result, because the performance is something that we're used to. We are playing very, very well at home and this was more of the same. I think that, after their goal, we had 10 minutes where we felt it," he added.

"The players couldn't hide that, because West Ham equalised with their first shot, but in the second half the team got the confidence to play again."

Mourinho said that he is happy to come to a club like United whose tradition is to play attacking football.

"The beauty of our attacking football is more of the same match after match but this time with goals. One of the things I proposed to myself was to come to such a club like Manchester United who play the kind of football that people want, because it's Manchester United tradition, so I'm really happy with that."

United will take on Hull City in the semi-final, the home leg of which will be played at their Old Trafford ground on January 10 or 11.
