Mourinho won’t face action for latest Klopp dig


As you might expect, Jose Mourinho was in touchy mood after his Manchester United side were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Hull City.

That’s now three league draws in a row for the Red Devils following two 1-1 results against Liverpool and Stoke.

Hull was by far the most disappointing, though, and it means that with Manchester City beating West Ham 4-0 at the London Stadium, United are four points behind their rivals in the race for the top four.

Mourinho looked agitated on the touchline, and in his post-match comments, he made a clear reference to Jurgen Klopp’s outburst during the Chelsea game.

“You know I am different,” he told reporters.

“The rules for me are different.

“Yesterday a fourth official told a manager ‘I enjoy very much your passion’. Today I am told to sit down or I am going to be sent to the stand.”


Klopp did indeed claim that that’s what the fourth official told him, which admittedly does seem like rather a double standard.

However, according to the Sun, FA chiefs do not believe Mourinho has breached regulations regarding what can and can’t be said to the media with that comment, so he will escape punishment this time.

Mourinho has already served a touchline ban this season and was threatened with a stadium ban.
