José Mourinho praises his players in victory over Swansea

José Mourinho was full of praise for his players in his post-match interview, after he saw his side dismantle Swansea City with three first-half goals.

The boss watched from the stands as Paul Pogba opened the scoring with a fantastic effort, then saw Zlatan Ibrahimovic add two more to end his goal drought.

Despite United failing to score in the second half and seeing Swansea pull one back to make it 3-1, Mourinho insisted that the game was always under control.

“The game was always under control. I think in the first-half they didn’t even have one shot because the control was total,” he told reporters.

“I’m really happy with the performance and I’m really happy for the players that were not afraid to go in and give everything.”

Mourinho also had a word for Ibrahimovic’s critics after his brace today.

“The way he [Zlatan] is working I am not worried that he is not scoring goals,” he said.

“He is doing amazing work for the team at every level, so he doesn’t score goals in a period, scores two goals [today] and that is the end of that period.”

The Portuguese boss was also quite clearly impressed by Paul Pogba’s man-of-the-match performance.

“He [Pogba] had already very good matches, but today is one of those performances where he was very good.

“I think everybody in the midfield played so well. I think Paul [Pogba] was surrounded by quality but his performance was impressive.”
