VAR decision went against protocol, says Jose Mourinho
Jose Mourinho was bemused by the video assistant referee's controversial intervention as Manchester United secured safe passage to the FA Cup quarter-finals at Huddersfield.
Romelu Lukaku netted early in both halves at the John Smith's Stadium to secure the visitors a 2-0 win on a night when technological teething problems reared their head once more.
Juan Mata wheeled off in celebration after netting from an acute angle just before half-time, only for referee Kevin Friend to eventually chalk the goal off as the narrowest of offsides was revisited.
United boss Mourinho is happy to see technology utilised and pointed to its relative success in Portugal, but felt it was wrong for video review assistant Neil Swarbrick to get involved given it was not a clear and obvious error.
"It is amazing when the truth comes," the United manager said.
"But also (there are) problems and one of the problems is exactly what happened today, which goes a little bit against the words of the protocol.
"The words of the protocol are something like a clear and obvious situation and for sure it was not a clear and obvious situation."
