Winners should be humble they say, and Jose Mourinho was as humble as possible in his post match reaction. This is what he had to say when asked about his brawl with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.
“For me, it is over,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.
“But the technical area is very clear – I have mine, he has his and he cannot come to mine, especially to put pressure on the referee to give a red card to my player.
“So I just told him ‘leave my technical area and don’t come back please’.”
Asked if it was a big deal that Wenger had put his hands on him, Mourinho said:
“No, it is no problem.”
“But Arsenal could have finished with eight men, because it is a red card for Koscielny, it is a double yellow card for Chambers in the first half, and clear was a red card for Welbeck.
“But I accept that the Welbeck red card was not given – the game was over and Welbeck is a good kid and is not aggressive. It was maybe just a reaction, some frustration.
“So I have no complaint really.”
