Mourinho has strongly been criticised by football fans and different pundits over his boring tactics. However, the 55-year-old has revealed that his side were positive this season.
“We are the second best team in the Premier League, a fantastic competition with lots of good teams with six teams trying to finish first,” Mourinho told BBC Sport.
“We came second, I am not totally happy, that is not my nature. But since the moment we felt it was impossible to finish first we had the target to finish second and it is done today.”
“I am not critical of the performance at all. Against Brighton, at halftime I told the players they were going to lose and tonight at halftime I said we would win. I was wrong but we were positive in the game.”
“In the 80th minute, we know that a point was enough so we start thinking about that and we let the game go. Now we have the objective to finish with more than 80 points.”
United, who will host Watford on Sunday as their last game of the season, are now four points clear of third-placed Tottenham Hotspur.
