Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he is not in the mood to point fingers after a much-changed side went down 1-0 to Dutch outfit Feyenoord at De Kuip in their opening Europa League game.

A 79th minute goal from Tonny Vilhena proved to be the difference between the two sides, though Manchester United were convinced Nicolai Jorgensen, who crossed for Vilhena, was offside.

Manchester United were lacklustre throughout and in an attempt to change the game, Mourinho brought on three players in the 63rd minute, introducing Ashley Young, Memphis Depay and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

It was to no avail though as the Premier League giants lost in Holland.

Mourinho handed some players the chance to impress, such as right-back Matteo Darmian, midfielder Ander Herrera and, off the bench, Depay. However, there were established faces, with Paul Pogba and Eric Bailly taking spots in the side, while David de Gea was in goal.


In total the boss made eight changes from the last side he named, but asked whether those who came in had not taken their chance, the Portuguese did not want to be drawn into commenting on specific players.

"I don't want to go in that direction", he explained to BT Sport.

"I don't want to personalise.

"Obviously, some played better than others. It was the first game for some."

He confirmed he will make wholesale changes for Manchester United's next game though, which comes against Watford at Vicarage Road on Sunday.

"We go back to a normal team without so many changes."
