Head coach of “Manchester United” Jose Mourinho at a press conference before the match 1/8 finals of the Europa League against “Rostov” said that the lawn at stadium “the Olympus-2” it is impossible to name football field

Jose Mourinho criticized the stadium lawn “the Olympus-2”, which is Thursday, March 9, “Manchester United” will play their first match of 1/8 finals of the Europa League against “Rostov”. According to him, the lawn can not be called a football field.

“I find it hard to believe that we are going to play on that pitch tomorrow, if it can be called a field. And I don’t know who we will play. Don’t know whether Mkhitaryan will play . I’ll have to think seriously, because I was expecting more favourable conditions. In the summer my city did not play in similar field in China. But now it looks like we will have to play.

Before that I never had contact. Now I spoke with one gentleman from UEFA, when I examined the field. And when I expressed to him my doubts, this gentleman said that the players are insured and if something happens, there will be no problems”, — quotes Mourinho “Sport-Express”.
