Jose Mourinho mocks Man Utd for "crying" over Anthony Martial red card

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho mocked his former employers Manchester United for their reaction to Anthony Martial’s red card during Spurs’ 6-1 demolition job at Old Trafford.

Martial was given his marching orders after striking Erik Lamela, although replays suggested Lamela lashed out first.

The Argentine made the most of the contact with United feeling aggrieved their striker was sent off.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were 2-1 down at the time and crumbled in the remainder of the match to suffer one of the most humiliating defeats in their history.

But Mourinho was short on sympathy for his old club.

“I didn’t watch it [back], maybe later I will but if somebody can cry about VAR decisions it’s Tottenham,” he said. “Not just this season but last season.

“If somebody cannot cry for VAR it is Manchester United for sure.”

United’s display was all too much for former defender Patrice Evra, who was working as a pundit for the game on Sky Sports.

The Frenchman was so disappointed with what he had watched, he offered to quit his role live on air.

Manchester United are looking to plot their path back to the top. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already brought in Donny van de Beek but Jadon Sancho remains Manchester United’s number one target.

“Alexis Sanchez made a comment when he signed for United, in his first training session he asked his agent to end his contract,” he began. “That’s what I am going to ask Sky. I really would like to end my contract with Sky.

“It is my second game, I’m a positive person and I never wanted to talk about United because when you tell the truth it can hurt. I am passionate and I love my club.

“I know you have to have some filter when you talk on TV but it is a shambles.”
