Jose Mourinho has given suggestions for why his side were knocked out of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

The Manchester United manager oversaw one of their worst performances in recent years as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat at Bristol, and has suggested some members of his squad didn’t fancy travelling to Bristol City.

“It’s a big day for them and their supporters,” Mourinho said after one of the greatest nights in Bristol City’s history.

“For us it was just one more day in the office and some of them probably didn't want to come into the office.

“They fought like this was the game of their lives which it probably was. It was a beautiful day for football.

“I congratulate them. The main thing of it is that they won. [We] lacked the intensity that they had. Not just physically but mentally.”
