Jose Mourinho on victory against Hull City and Marouane Fellaini's worrying injury


Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was delighted after his side registered a very important away win against Hull City.

The Red Devils needed a late Marcus Rashford goal to take all three points against Mike Phelan's men and stay at the top of the English Premier League.

And the Portuguese says his players deserved the win as he confirmed that midfielder Marouane Fellaini could be sidelined for weeks.

"[Sir Alex Ferguson is] such a legend in the club and I'm more than happy to say that we won in 'Fergie time'. I'm more than happy with that," he told reporters.

"I know when we score late people will speak about a bit of luck but the reality is we deserved it, especially in the second half. We were so dominant, so intense in our rhythm and our attacking wave and I always believed the goal would arrive.

"I have to say that Hull City did an amazing job and defended with everything.

"They couldn't counterattack because I think we played very well defensively and every time we lost the ball we were really strong. But I think they did fantastically well, congratulations to them and if I was the chairman I would give the job immediately to Mike Phelan.

"In the eyes of everyone, the players are giving everything and for him. They couldn't do more than what they did and congratulations to Mike and the Hull boys.

"Marouane [Fellaini] is a special guy for us in our defensive work.

"He has an injury in his back. It's not good."
