Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho accused his players of jeopardising Champions League victory over Basel by playing “Playstation football”.
United marked their return to the competition with a 3-0 win at Old Trafford, but Mourinho was unimpressed with their play in the second half.
“Until 2-0 we were stable, we played with confidence,” he told BT Sport.
“After 2-0 everything changed, we stopped playing seriously and stopped making right decisions.”
Goals from Marouane Fellaini, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford gave United an ultimately comfortable victory.
But Mourinho said: “We could have put ourselves in trouble.
“We were playing fantasy football, Playstation football. I don’t like it – flicks and tricks.
“We gambled and you have to respect your opponent. I don’t know if goal difference will play a part.
“We lost position, our shape, we lost balls in easy situations. I didn’t like it – the players relaxed too much.”
