Jose Mourinho Gets Into Touchline Brawl With Chelsea Backroom Staff

United were course to come away with three points from the clash but Ross Barkley found an equaliser for Maurizio Sarri's side at the death.

Ianni did his cavorting right in front of Jose Mourinho and on his way back past the United manager was looking at him and fist-pumping pointedly and Mourinho leapt up in fury and pursued the Italian, who disappeared down the...

So after celebrating, Ianni had to pass Mourinho to get back to the bench.

This is the reality that Mourinho must accept. Already, Mourinho's side has not been convincing this season, and that only increases Chelsea's chances of recording another victory over Manchester United on Saturday.

"No, I'm not annoyed with anything", he said. What happened was with Sarri's assistant, Sarri was the first one to come to me and say he will resolve it. I spoke immediately with the member of my staff and I told him to speak with Mourinho and say sorry.


"In those hard moments, the moments where he was not selected, not playing regularly, he was saying the same all the time: "I want to play for you and I am going to make it and be the player you want me to be'".

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has attacked the behaviour of the Chelsea fans upon his return to Stamford Bridge. While his status as a Chelsea player beyond this season may be an unknown, Blues fans will be able to delight in the form the Belgian is now in.

Mourinho said he could not understand the amount of stoppage time played, adding: "I hope every referee does the same as Mike Dean, to give six minutes. Now everything is finished". "But that is not up to me".

"I have a certain level of education, socially and sport, and what I did here today I would do in Madrid, Porto, Milan, I try to behave always the same way".

At the other end, United attempted to stop the outstanding player of the Premier League season so far with some rough treatment as Nemanja Matic and Ashley Young were shown early yellow cards for chopping down Eden Hazard.


"We played our football but after the first (United) goal we haven't played our football - only long balls".

'We conceded from two set-pieces, but that is a way to score goals and you have to be able to defend against that'. And individually in the second half, they raised the bar. They face Italian giants Juventus on Tuesday and again on November 7 in the Champions League, after which they visit cross-town rivals and reigning domestic champions Manchester City.

But once again, when the dust settled, the story was all about Mourinho.

However, Barkley slammed in the last meaningful kick of the contest to secure a point, with all eyes then drawn to a spat between Mourinho and Chelsea's second assistant coach Marco Ianni. Pundits blamed Paul Pogba for losing his man.
