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.”
