Jose Mourinho: Manchester United scored two legal goals

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho said while he is not angry with the assistant referee for adjudging Zlatan Ibrahimovich’s decisive equalizer against Everton on Tuesday night as offside goal, the replays should have been used to judge if the goal was legal or not.

Ibrahimovich’s goal was disallowed after the assistant referee raised the offside flag to the amazement of the Portuguese gaffer.

Replays afterwards showed the diving header as goal while the linesman had ruled otherwise.

After seeing the tight decision by the linesman, Mourinho said the video replay would have been used to judge the legality of the goal.

He told the BBC after the match, “We scored two legal goals but I tell you with a smile on my face because I am not upset with the linesman.

“A really difficult decision for him, only video assistant replay could help this.

“After pressure, after pressure, after pressure the goal finally arrived and at least you don’t have the feeling of defeat.

“They were taking off attacking players and putting on defenders. They were inviting us to attack but they can do that because [Romelu] Lukaku is so powerful he can be dangerous.

“The players gave everything. The performance from a football point of view was not good, but I am very pleased with the effort.”
