Jose Mourinho was sent to the stands deep in stoppage time during Manchester United’s 1-0 win at Southampton today.
We were preparing to defend a corner in the 94th minute when referee Craig Pawson sent the boss to the stands.
Ultimately the corner was cleared and the final whistle blew to secure three more points.
Speaking in his post-match press conference, Mourinho told the BBC to speak to the referee over Pawson’s decision to send the boss to the stands:
“I don’t know. You have to ask the referee.”
However, the match report from the BBC says that Mourinho was sent to the stands for stepping onto the field:
“The Portuguese added he did not think he had gone on the pitch.”
It seems that Jose Mourinho cannot do anything without being sent to the stands these days, whilst Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp can constantly abuse officials and get away with it.
Victory for us today means that we have taken 16 points from a possible 18 to start the season and end the weekend joint top of the Premier League with Manchester City.
We go to CSKA Moscow in the Champions League on Wednesday night with both sides on three points after the first group game.
