Mourinho accepts apology from Chelsea assistant coach

Maurizio Sarri Jose Mourinho

Maurizio Sarri Jose Mourinho

He also didn't need to hit back at the Chelsea fans, but when you throw away three points you so desperately want with nearly the last kick of the game, it would be testing the resolve of anyone, never mind someone as emotional as Mourinho. A floated ball into the box led to a rush of bodies battling for the ball, but inevitably, it was an unsuspected Ross Barkley to fire home in the dying embers of the match.

"After we were 2-1 up we had possibilities to score the third goal, we were the best team, we were calm in control. Normally when I'm losing I never have five or six or seven minutes".

The dramatic finish was overshadowed by the late scuffle, which had been instigated by Ianni's celebrations that Mourinho noted were "very impolite".

He said: "Oh come on, I can tell you that 97 minutes of the game was so good that you have to focus on that".

"I am not annoyed with anything", Mourinho said.

Ianni forms part of Sarri's 10-man strong backroom staff, along with club legend Gianfranco Zola, one of two assistant first-team coaches. "But then the young fellow came and he also apologised and I told him "I accept your apology, I also made mistakes especially when I was your age and try to improve".

"In fact I would say sometimes it's a reckless approach away from home, even at home". It was Sarri who took the sting out of the situation by seeking out Mourinho and attempting to find out what had happened.




Mourinho, who won three titles with Chelsea, has been touted as the next Premier League managerial sacking after his side's indifferent start to the season.

"And I have to say it's a different approach he's used historically when he's been manager of Chelsea". What I did here today I will do in Madrid, in Milan, in Porto, the reaction from the fans is not up to me.

Sarri was quick to apologise to Mourinho and said he would take action behind closed doors. I do not know where the extra time came from. "We were in the wrong". "I have spoken with the member of my staff and then I bring him to speak with Mourinho to say sorry to him". I have to be very hard.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was involved in ugly scenes at the end of his return to Stamford Bridge.

The coach jumped from his seat and was held back by those around, as he attempted to sort things out with Ianni.

'They have to play in my character.

This was, in the second half at least, much more like it from United, as Anthony Martial proved his quality, Juan Mata pulled the strings and Paul Pogba strived to make amends for his terrible switch-off at Willian's corner that allowed Antonio Rudiger a free header for Chelsea's first goal. He first punched the air while looking directly at the United manager. In the second, they showed the sort of team they could be. Yet Mourinho ended up questioning why Dean played so much stoppage time after Barkley snatched a point for the hosts in the 96th minute.
