Champions League: Mourinho blasts Rio Ferdinand, Scholes after Young Boys win

Sanchez has had limited opportunities at Old Trafford this year

Jose Mourinho has hit back at the BT Sport studio after being criticised for his reaction to Marcus Rashford's early miss in Manchester United's win over Young Boys on Tuesday night.

The Spain global made an incredible save to prevent Young Boys substitute Ulisses Garcia from putting the Swiss champions in front at Old Trafford before Marouane Fellaini scored a stoppage-time victor to send United into the last-16 of the Champions League.

Fellaini's goal was the hosts' first home goal in Europe this season.

In keeping with United's struggles under Mourinho, it could have been even worse but for the brilliance of goalkeeper David de Gea, who produced a stunning save from Ulisses Garcia's deflected effort to deny Young Boys midway through the second-half.

The Belgium worldwide was benched for clashes with Everton and Manchester City, playing a total of 58 minutes across the two games, while he was also a substitute against Young Boys in the Champions League on Tuesday. "If it touched my hand, it was not on goal".

Asked why he had acted the way he did when his side had just clinched victory against Young Boys - and qualified for the round of 16 - Mourinho said: "Relief". Despite going 11 games without a goal, the Belgian still managed to play a crucial part in United's progression to the next round, clearly demonstrating why Mourinho rates him so highly.

"I was frustrated we couldn't score".

"My players were really exhausted at the end and that's what we wanted: it means they gave everything. But in the end we've qualified from a very hard group".

Mourinho reacted to the goal by wreaking havoc on the team's water bottles.

Alexis Sanchez's contract, which is worth up to £500,000 a week with bonuses and image rights, has dramatically increased De Gea's prospects of earning a huge uplift on his existing £200,000 a week deal.

With Mourinho, no one really knows, but one thing is for sure.

"There are better teams than us". United had 21 shots in total, but it was De Gea who had to make the most important saves.
