The win this afternoon, against Southampton, gave Jose Mourinho his first major trophy as the manager of Manchester United.

It was also the fourth occasion he`s won the League Cup, the other three whilst being in charge of Chelsea.

Speaking to the media after the final, Mourinho paid Southampton the compliments they deserve for pushing United all the way and being the better side for much of the game with Mourinho remarking,

“Honestly, Ibrahimovic won the game for us because he was outstanding. I can see a couple of performances – Pogba similar level – but he was outstanding.

‘In a match where the opponent was better than us for long periods – they deserved to go to extra time – he made the difference and he gave us the cup.

“I’m a bit emotional yes. It’s not easy to win titles and so many times. It’s not easy to cope with the pressure I put myself under.

‘It was a game I was feeling the difficulty. I want to pay homage to Southampton and what they deserve. We have the cup in our hands and probably should be in extra time.

‘Winning is always special. The day I don’t get emotional when I win is the day to go home.’

Good to hear Jose compliment the opposition, they were superb and probably didn`t get the breaks their play deserved.
