London - Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho claims being forced
to watch their 3-1 win over Swansea on Sunday from the stands didn't change his
Mourinho was not pitch-side for his side's first win in five
matches after he was given a one-game ban for misconduct.
However, the Red Devils boss revealed after the game that
the ban didn't affect his ability to do his job, as he was able to communicate
"I did what I do," he commented after the game.
"I made the changes, sent a message when something needs to be told to the
team, and I was in the dressing room before the game and at half-time.
"One thing is the suspension that stops the manager to
communicate, that is a problem.
"Another thing is the suspension when the manager can
communicate with the team, see the team and speak to the assistants on the
bench. So in this case it was not a problem."
