Man Utd manager Mourinho sends reminder to 'lovers' about CL record

Jose Mourinho reminded his critics of his European record following Manchester United's 1-0 win over Young Boys in the Champions League last night.

Marouane Fellaini scored in injury time to secure United's progression to the knockout stages.

And speaking after the game, Mourinho took a shot at his critics by listing his European record.

"Let me send a message to my lovers and let me say that I've played Champions League for 14 years and I've qualified 14 times," the Portuguese told his post-match press conference.

"The two years where I didn't play in the Champions League, I won the Europa League twice.

"So in 16 years, 14 times I qualify and twice I play Europa League and I won. So just curiosity for my lovers and the lovers of the stats."
