Jose Mourinho has explained the intense celebrations on the Manchester United bench after Chris Smalling’s goal against Watford.

Smalling doubled United’s lead at Vicarage Road with a smart finish after some excellent control from a corner.

The goal came about after Marouane Fellaini headed a delivery back into the area for Smalling, who chested the ball before firing past Ben Foster.

It was met with wild celebrations on the United bench, with Mourinho embracing assistant coaches Kieran McKenna and Michael Carrick.

It seems both played a part in the goal, with Mourinho explaining that the move had been worked on in training.

Mourinho turns around straight away to celebrate with Kieran McKenna.

“Because we trained the corner during the week, the best thing that can happen to coaches is you train and you see it happen in the match,” Mourinho said.

“And they are happening even in these last few matches, even in the one against Tottenham, are happening things that are working, the positional, the movement.

“But the set-pieces are very specific things that you work, you work, you work and for weeks and weeks and weeks sometimes you don’t see the results of that work. So when it happens was happiness for coaching staff.”
