Mourinho reveals what he told Pogba after Man City heroics

16 April 2018

More importantly, though, it means Pep Guardiola's City team can not now be caught at the top of the table, thus handing the Catalan coach his first Premier League crown in just his second year in English football.

José Mourinho said he could "smell" a bad performance coming from Manchester United after the 1-0 defeat by bottom-of-the-table West Bromwich Albion that confirmed Manchester City as Premier League champions and left him questioning his players' attitude.

It is Abu Dhabi-owned City's third title in seven seasons and their first since former boss Manuel Pellegrini achieved the feat in 2013-14.

Mourinho will have been well aware that City was going to win the title at some point anyway, but the lack of fight from his players will have been cause for concern. It means we can now focus exclusively on the breathtaking football, the power and vision of Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling's development, Leroy Sane's unstoppable surges down the left, Kyle Walker's dominance of the right flank and Guardiola's determination to win his way. This title won by the City would be the fifth in the history of the team.

The Catalan has now won three titles in three different countries after three La Liga triumphs in Spain with Barcelona and three Bundesliga crowns with Bayern Munich and admitted it was one of his best achievements. He also said that it would be unfair to put too much emphasis on United's loss.

Mourinho's position as the United manager is further weakened by the fact that Liverpool are emerging as a force to be reckoned with.

Wherever you look, City have broken records or stand on the verge of creating another.

United now find themselves sat 16 points behind City with four games to go. In addition, Evans is a dogged defender, who is not afraid to act aggressive and commit himself into every tackle, something that's been missing from the current crop of Man City defenders.

It was undoubtedly an embarrassing result but United still showed their class and congratulated City on their title win with a short, yet very respectable post on Twitter.

City's title is the 24th trophy of his glittering career.

City had registered a 3-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Saturday.

However, the celebrations had not even started when Kompany was already thinking about the next season.

Mourinho also lashed out at his men for taking the victory over arch-rivals in the derby in the head and called the team "masters of complication" while shedding light on the shock defeat to West Brom.
