Jose Mourinho: Man Utd boss escapes punishment for fracas after Chelsea match

Man Utd news Anthony Martial netted twice in the win against Chelsea

Mourinho's side had been poised to earn a comeback win at unbeaten Chelsea until a stoppage-time equaliser from substitute Ross Barkley earned the Blues a 2-2 draw and sparked a pitchside pantomime.

On the touchline incident with Mourinho and Ianni, Sarri added: "I didn't see anything on the pitch".

The Chelsea boss has, however, spoken to the member of his staff who was involved, while Mourinho insisted there was no bad feeling after receiving an apology from both Sarri and Ianni.

However, Sky Sports reports Chelsea "will not override whatever action Sarri deems appropriate", despite the coach's conduct "falling well below standards".

Chelsea's 2-2 draw with Manchester United on Saturday afternoon was one of the most entertaining Premier League games of the season so far.

Mourinho and his staff are said to have been impressed with Martial's application and performances in training in recent week, and he's looked focused again after the Chelsea game.




Mourinho was outraged, rose from his seat and tried to confront the assistant, who appeared to disappear down the tunnel, and the United boss had to be restrained by officials.

"We are talking about a coach that has won everything, everywhere, so I think you have to respect him".

"I thought Cristiano is in a level where he doesn't need these questions and these answers", Mourinho said, showing contempt at just being asked about Ronaldo's greatness. "Then after the game, everyone was quiet and friendly", said the Chelsea ace.

"The assistant has already come to me and apologized, I told him to forget it". What happened with (Maurizio) Sarri's assistant, Sarri was the first one to come to me and say he will resolve it. I think he's developing.

While not advocating for such a harsh punishment, British football pundits largely backed Mourinho, with former United midfielder Paul Ince saying he would react the same way as the Portuguese. "However, we worked hard and this sort of match enabled us to show that we are a good team".

"I hope every referee does the same as Mike Dean and gives six minutes".
