Henrikh Mkhitaryan insists Manchester United have heeded Jose Mourinho’s “PlayStation football” criticism ahead of Wednesday’s clash against CSKA Moscow.
The Red Devils travel to Russia tonight for UEFA Champions League action but do so with their manager’s words ringing in their ears after Mourinho had criticised them for taking their foot off the gas against Basel earlier this month.
United went on to win that encounter 3-0 but failed to impress Mourinho with their attitude, and Mkhitaryan says the team will not suffer the boss’ wrath again as they head for Russia.
“Of course everyone knows that Jose Mourinho is very demanding and what he said was right,” the Armenia international said.
“He didn’t exactly say names but everyone thinks they have done something bad or made a mistake.
“We are trying to improve that aspect and stay more focused during the whole game and not be doing fantasy football or PlayStation, as he said, in the last 25 minutes.”
