Ianni charged as Mourinho escapes punishment

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho looks at his watch, during a training session at the Aon Training Complex, in Manchester, England, Monday, Oct. 22, 2018.

However, Maurizio Sarri's assistant, Marco Ianni, celebrated the goal in a way that provoked the Red Devils boss to react. Mourinho was furious with Ianni but the coach accompanied Maurizio Sarri into the Manchester United dressing room to apologise and ex-Real Madrid and Inter Milan boss accepted his apology.

Mourinho is Chelsea's most successful manager ever, winning three Premier League titles over the course of his two spells at Stamford Bridge and being universally adored by Blues fans everywhere.

He said: "Oh come on, I can tell you that 97 minutes of the game was so good that you have to focus on that".

Mourinho ran after Ianni and attempted to chase him down the dugout before being blocked by various members of staff and stewards, who tried to break up the confrontation. I think he's developing.

"In relation to this incident, Jose Mourinho has been formally reminded of his responsibilities whilst both clubs have received similar official reminders in terms of the behaviour expected of their staff and players at all times whilst in the technical area". "Then after the game, everyone was quiet and friendly", said the Chelsea ace.

United were on the verge of securing their first win at Stamford Bridge since 2012 after mounting an impressive comeback in the second half, with Anthony Martial scoring twice after Antonio Rüdiger had given Chelsea an early lead.

"The assistant has already come to me and apologized, I told him to forget it".

"He apologised to me".

It all took place after Barkley made it 2-2 in the 96th minute to earn the draw. "I want to thank Chelsea for its honesty too - but I am not happy that it is going too far with the young boy", the Man United manager was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"I will speak to him again (on Sunday). For 60 minutes we played our football", the former Napoli coach said in his post-match press conference.
