On what was a solemn afternoon, when the Manchester United faithful remembered those who tragically died in the Munich air disaster, United got back to winning ways.

After the 2-0 victory, Jose Mourinho spoke to the BBC and had this to say about the game,

‘We always had control of the game, but at half time it was 0-0. I guess we had around 85% possession in the first half but it was not enough. We kept doing the same in the second and even at 1-0 we were totally in control. Our defensive line as far from the danger areas.

‘We had to be patient but had to keep the intensity high and the pressure. We had to break down the Berlin wall organised so well by David Wagner.

‘It was nice for Alexis Sanchez to win a match, the first at home. Nice for him to play well and show the desire and happiness in playing football. That is most important. It was not the goal of his dreams, but it is a goal.”

Hopefully, it`ll be the first of many.

Continuing, Jose also spoke about the saddest day in Manchester United`s history, further adding,

‘It is important for the bad reasons but the memories stay. The club looks at the date and event as a key moment in the history of the club. It is nice to do that playing at home and winning.’

It is important and we shall never forget those who were involved in the tragedy.
