Jose was offered biggest deal in the World to ditch Man Utd

Jose Mourinho reacted to Manchester United’s surprise 1-0 defeat to West Brom by accusing his players of letting victory in the Manchester derby go to their heads.

The loss means Manchester City emerged Premier League champions on Sunday and Mourinho has claimed that he could 'smell' the change in mood among his squad during the week following the win over City last week.

“I know them,” he said. “I have lots of experience and that's not me because I won eight titles. I'm not on the moon because I won against Manchester City, a match that is only three points.

“I saw lots of people on the moon because we won against Manchester City. Like to win against City was the most important thing ever. I won too much to be happy with just one big victory.

“In my opinion, it affected for sure some of the people that were too happy just with that. During the week I was trying to fight that because I was feeling it.”
