Jose Mourinho has stated his contentment with Manchester United lifting the EFL Cup on Sunday evening after a late Zlatan Ibrahimovic header gave his side a 3-2 win over Southampton at Wembley.
Speaking at his post-match press conference in quotes carried by Manutd.com, United’s manager had this to say after the win:
“I am very happy, I am very happy. It is important for the fans, the club and the players. I always try to put myself in the secondary position. The reality is also important to me. I put a lot of pressure on myself. I wanted very much to win a major trophy with every club and by doing that with Manchester United, it is quite a sense of relief. It was a big target for me to win a trophy with Manchester United but the reality is we want more. My contract is long, I have two more years plus this one so hopefully I can win something more this season.”
“I’m a bit emotional. It’s not easy to win titles so many times, it’s not easy to cope with the pressure I put myself under all of my career. It was a game I felt was difficult, so credit goes to Southampton. We have the cup in our hands but we should be playing extra-time. Winning is always special. The day I don’t get emotional when I win is the day I go home.”
