How Newcastle Taught Jose Mourinho a Lesson

As reported by the Chronicle, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has spoken about a defeat at Newcastle, some years ago,  that appears to have taught him a lesson.

In reference to the game, that saw Glen Johnson end up in goal due to Mourinho making three subs very early, he said: “I threw it away, I gambled too much,”

“I focused too much on Barcelona and Liverpool.

However, Mourinho does appear to be determined that it won’t happen again, adding: “So I don’t throw it away [now].

“If I lose, I lose because the opponent was better or because we didn’t play well.

“Maybe we foreign managers, not everybody studies and understands the culture of this country.”

“In my case, I had immediately in my first time that situation with the match at Newcastle so for me it was a lesson.”

Im sure that this is still a match that many Newcastle supporters remember fondly.
