“It was bad but I also made mistakes ” – Jose Mourinho speaks out on altercation after Ross Barkley’s goal

Manchester United Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho was involved in a minor bust-up near the tunnel at Stamford Bridge after Ross Barkley made it 2-2 in the Chelsea-Manchester United tie.

The United manager was riled up by a Chelsea assistant coach, Marco Ianni, and the Portuguese tried to chase the Blues man down.

Mourinho was stopped by a steward but a number of coaches and players all gathered around the area. The Daily Mail reports that Maurizio Sarri apologised to the United manager and Mourinho was quoted as saying:

“It was bad education but I also made mistakes in football matches and I will make more so, when after the game he came to me to apologise, I accepted his apology and nothing more to say.

“Maurizio saw and Maurizio said he would take care of it internally and to accept his apologies which I did.

“But then the young fellow came and he also apologised and I told him: ‘I accept your apology. I also did mistakes, especially when I was your age, and try to improve’”

Mourinho certainly was not taking the altercation lightly and after the final whistle, the United manager was seen pointing three fingers to the Chelsea fans.

The game certainly turned out to be a cracker, however, we should be a little upset about not winning the three points.
