"I think we didn't really start the game well but we were winning 1-0 so it was positive for us", he said.
United ended their weekend match with Wolves 1-1 at home, putting another dent in their hopes of chasing the Premier League crown this season.
According to a UK Sun report, the French World Cup victor insists the performance of the Red Devils could have been different, if the Portuguese boss adopted a positive approach for the Premier League tie.
The Chilean has struggled to make an impact since arriving at Old Trafford in January.
Indeed, even Paul Pogba spoke out about Mourinho's defensive strategy, urging United to "attack, attack, attack" in home matches. 'When we are at home we should attack, attack, attack.
"I think Wolves, by the way they faced the game, they deserve (the point) because they play like I like to play, which is like the World Cup final".
"We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves", he said.
"That was our mistake today [Saturday]".
"When we play like (that) it's easier for us".
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that newly promoted Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers forced Manchester United to 1-1 draw at Old trafford on Saturday, September 26. It has become a familiar pattern and, when asked if there needed to be far more movement ahead of him, Pogba gave a wry laugh before eventually abandoning any attempt at diplomacy. I don't know how many games we've had at home - three - and we've got only four points. Maybe he's right, I don't know.
Pogba, though, defended the 29-year-old and said he is still adapting after leaving Arsenal and that the best is yet to come. We know that Alexis Sanchez can bring a lot and I'm sure he will. "It's better for us if we get close".
