As most will have heard or read already this Thursday morning, Jose Mourinho isn’t a happy bunny… as usual.
The Manchester United boss oversaw another frustrating 0-0 loss at home to Hull in the Premier League on Wednesday night but instead of paying attention to his side dropping yet more points, leaving them four points adrift of the top four, we’re talking about his post-match strop.
The Portuguese coach believes that he gets different treatment from other managers in the Premier League and although he didn’t specifically mention Jurgen Klopp or Arsene Wenger, it doesn’t take a genius to work out who he was referring to.
“Don’t ask me questions that I cannot answer. You know clearly that I am different. The rules for me are different,” he blasted.
“I am different in everything, I watch my team play in a hotel, I was forbidden to go to the stadium, my assistant (Faria) had a six-match stadium ban and he didn’t touch anyone.
“Yesterday one fourth official told to a manager, ‘I enjoy very much your passion, so do what you want to do’.
“Today I was told, ‘Sit down or I have to send you to the stands’. So everything is different for me.”
Wenger has now served two games of a four-match touchline ban for pushing fourth official, Anthony Taylor, during the Gunners’ narrow 2-1 victory against Burnley at the Emirates, while Mourinho has served two touchline bans this season and a stadium ban last term.
However, his gripe against officials Mike Jones (ref), Andy Garratt (1st assistant), Matt Wilkes (2nd assistant) and Stuart Attwell (4th official) on Wednesday night is unclear. In fact, he never actually brought up a specific point, just stropped around, insinuated they didn’t do their job and stormed out of post-match interviews.
