New Delhi: Manchester United displayed a poor show at the UEFA Europa League after being defeated by Feyenoord on Thursday. 

The loss against the Dutch club is the second consecutive defeat for Jose Mourinho.

Earlier, Manchester United were beaten at home by rivals Manchester City 2-1. The coach had made eight changes from the team after the defeat.

Expressing his displeasure over the team’s defeat, Coach Jose Mourinho said the team lost the game precisely in the moment it didn’t deserve to lose.

“Of course I’m unhappy, especially because I think we lose the game precisely in the moment we don’t deserve to lose. In the second half we were always in control. We were trying to win, they were trying not to lose, and precisely in the moment we were feeling they were collapsing, it’s exactly in that moment that we lose the game,” Jose Mourinho said.

The team was playing without first-team regulars Wayne Rooney, Luke Shaw and Antonio Valencia.

This is for the first time in the history that Manchester United have lost their opening group game in Europe in consecutive seasons.
