United boss thinks ‘rules are different’
Jose Mourinho appeared to take a dig at Jurgen Klopp on Wednesday evening after his Manchester United team were held 0-0 at home by Hull.
Mourinho was frustrated by the struggling Tigers and expressed this in his post-match interviews.
The United manager appeared to be particularly angered by Oumar Niasse twice escaping a red card, having been booked early in the game.
And, just 24 hours after Jurgen Klopp had an incident with a 4th official at Anfield, which he apologised for, Mourinho claimed he is often told to sit down during games, and hinted there are double standards in the league.
“I don’t want to speak much because I pay lots of fines,” said Mourinho, who has been sent off twice this season, for kicking a water bottle and for protesting a penalty decision.
“I pay more than others, much more than others. For example yesterday one manager was told by the fourth official ‘I love your emotion and because I love your emotion, no problem’.
“I was told today ‘sit down or you have to go to the stands’ and on the pitch a bit more of the same.
“They don’t like my emotion, but I think what is happening this season is not for me to speak about.”
Mourinho later answered just three questions in his post-match press conference before standing up and leaving.
“You do your job and you do a public service, I think. Tell the truth. It’s as simple as that,” he said to reporters.
