JOSE MOURINHO’S pay­mas­ters won’t be happy with his lat­est touch­line an­tics. That’s the warn­ing to the Por­tuguese from for­mer Arsenal star Martin Keown.

Mourinho was sent to the Old Traf­ford stands for the sec­ond time this sea­son in the 1-1 draw with West Ham yes­ter­day.

The Por­tuguese re­acted an­grily to Paul Pogba be­ing booked for div­ing and was dis­missed af­ter kick­ing over a wa­ter bot­tle.

“The hi­er­ar­chy at his foot­ball club will not be happy with the im­age he’s cre­at­ing”

“[It] is a mas­sive over­re­ac­tion. I don’t get it, he knows he’ll get sent off,” he said on Match of the Day 2.

“He’s in a mas­sive job there – he needs to keep that lid on things. Peo­ple say ‘Oh you’re an ex-Arsenal player and you don’t want to see Man United do well’.

“No. I want to see good foot­ball - they were un­lucky to­day. But their man­ager… the hi­er­ar­chy at his foot­ball club will not be happy with the im­age he’s cre­at­ing now at that foot­ball club.

His man­ager must have thought so too as he greeted the flour­ished yel­low card by turn­ing around and belt­ing a wa­ter bot­tle down what used to be the play­ers’ en­trance at Old Traf­ford. What fol­lowed was pre­dictable and Mourinho made what must now be a fa­mil­iar jour­ney from dug-out to di­rec­tors’ box.

His view from the stands would have been an equally fa­mil­iar one. As they had in so many matches here, Manch­ester United dom­i­nated a game and some­how failed to win it.

“I find it hard to be­lieve our po­si­tion in the ta­ble,” Mourinho had writ­ten in his pro­gramme notes be­fore be­rat­ing the tidal wave of ill-luck that has flooded a sta­dium that once dealt ruth­lessly will all com­ers.

Their po­si­tion in the ta­ble is what it was be­fore kick­off – sixth. How­ever, the fact that the top four all won meant that the gap be­tween the Premier League’s big­gest club and the Cham­pi­ons League places is now chose not to start ei­ther Wayne Rooney or Hen­rikh Mkhi­taryan, although both looked sharp when they were flung on. Mar­cus Rash­ford ought to have scored when oneon-one with the keeper but Dar­ren Ran­dolph kept his nerve, stood his ground and saved with an out­stretched boot.

Ibrahi­movic, how­ever, was in his el­e­ment. But for some su­perb in­ter­cep­tions from An­gelo Og­bonna and Cheikhou Kouy­ate, he might have won the match.

His equaliser was sub­lime. It seemed a goal the mo­ment Pogba sent in a ball from 30 yards out. Ibrahi­movic ac­cel­er­ated away from James Collins. Ran­dolph did not know whether to come for it or leave to his de­fender.

He re­mained where he was, for­get­ting that one of Ibrahi­movic’s great qual­i­ties is the litheness of his body which he uses as the kind of weapon not even James Bond had in his ar­moury. From head to net in one touch. – The In­de­pen­dent
