Jose Mourinho Had A Priceless Reaction To Harry Winks Saying He Didn't Mean 53 Yard Goal

Jose Mourinho Had A Priceless Reaction To Harry Winks Saying He Didn't Mean 53 Yard Goal

Jose Mourinho would not have been as honest as Harry Winks after the England midfielder admitted he did not mean his 53 yard strike last night.

Winks found the net in incredibly bizarre fashion in the 63rd minute of the 4-0 win against Ludogorets, his long-range strike catching out the opposition goalkeeper.

However, it became apparent that Winks was in fact looking for the run of teammate Gareth Bale and he was unbelievably shocked to see the ball nestle in.

If his reaction at the time wasn't enough, Winks confirmed he wasn't attempting in a shot in a post-match interview.

"I'd love to sit here and say that I did, but I've got to be honest and say no," Winks told BT Sport.

"I saw Gaz (Gareth Bale) run in. I'll take it at the end of the day. It has been a while [since I last scored] but I am happy with the way the team played."

His manager, however, would not have taken the same approach and says if it were him, he would have claimed he absolutely meant it.

"Winks was honest and he told in some flash interview that he wanted to play a diagonal ball to Bale," he said.

"If it was me I would have said I did mean it and won the Puskas award."

The Portuguese boss said: "He could try to score but for Vinicius it was an easy goal. A team player does that, no risk and 2-0. It does not surprise me that he did that.

"Dele was like the team. A very good first half. In the second half in the first 20 to 25 minutes they closed and tried not to concede more goals.

"We became a little bit more passive and we never really felt the threat of a possible goal. We let it go down a little bit."
