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

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

Chelsea's hierarchy are said to be "angry and deeply embarrassed" following the behaviour of Maurizio Sarri's backroom staff towards Jose Mourinho during their 2-2 draw with Manchester United over the weekend, according to Sky Sports.

"Both clubs have received similar official reminders in terms of the behavior expected of their staff and players at all times whilst in the technical area", a statement from the FA read.

Mourinho, though, will be relieved that on this occasion, he is in the clear.

Antonio Rudiger had headed the hosts in front, but United turned the game around, Anthony Martial grabbing a brace in an absorbing contest between Mourinho's current club and one of his former employers.

"I don't think he deserves more than what he got", Mourinho said, referring to Ianni.

However, Sarri acknowledged that his man had gone too far.

But Blues coach Marco Ianni has been charged with improper conduct.

Speaking to the Times, Barkley explained his decision: "I got them at a young age and sometimes when you are young you do stupid things and not think about it".

"I'm glad he apologised and I'm glad Jose accepted his apology".

"The situation was only resolved when Chelsea made Ianni apologise to Mourinho". Jose Mourinho's side have picked up just one victory from the previous six matches across all competitions but they come into the clash with some positivity after a good second-half performance in the recent 2-2 draw against Chelsea.

"That is the way we have got to do it, the second half against Newcastle and 60-65 minutes of this game and as long as we play like that I'm sure we will get the result".

"You can't tell me that the back-two pairing that the form's there, because they're not the same people there all the time". "I've matured and I understand the game more, which is natural growing up, I'm 24 now. We were wrong, we made a mistake".

Amid reports he was set to face the axe, Mourinho had been handed a lifeline by a stirring fightback from 2-0 down to beat Newcastle 3-2 before the worldwide break a fortnight ago.

Premier League champions Manchester City are moving ominously into gear, boasting almost 2.9 goals per game in the Premier League after nine matches - an even higher strike rate than over the course of their record-breaking return last season.
