Man Utd boss Mourinho takes swipe at Man City: We lose with dignity

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has taken a swipe at Manchester City after defeat at FA Cup opponents Wigan Athletic.

City's campaign ended in disgrace as Pep Guardiola clashed with Wigan boss Paul Cook on the touchline and in the tunnel before Sergio Aguero was involved in a bust-up with a pitch invader.

"Of course, we would like to be better in the Premier League, but we are where we are. In the Champions League, we are alive. In the FA Cup, we are alive," he said on BT Sport.

"In the Carabao Cup, after winning last season, we lost in the quarter-final but we lost like Manchester United likes to lose – with dignity, with fair play, with participation in the happiness of a giant killer.

"So even in the Carabao Cup, we lost against a Championship team, I would say that as a Manchester United manager that way of behaving as a big team, even in defeat we were a big team."
