Jose Mourinho-Marco Ianni fight after the second goal at Stamford Bridge, as the game ends in a 2-2 draw.
Manchester United were held to a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge as Ross Barkley’s last-minute goal canceled the lead for Mourinho’s side.
Anthony Martial scored both the goals as United made a terrific comeback after being 1-0 down in the first half, but Ross Barkley finished the game with a brilliant goal at the end.
Barkley’s goal was followed by a tussle on the touchline as Chelsea’s assistant manager, Marco Ianni celebrated in front of Mourinho. The Portuguese manager retaliated, which ensued a fight between the two dugouts.
After the full-time whistle, Chelsea fans began to boo Mourinho, chanting “f*** off Mourinho.” In return, Jose Mourinho made a sign which made the Blues’ fans eat their words.
Jose Mourinho-Marco Ianni
As Ross Barkley scored the equalizer for Chelsea in the final seconds of the match, Marco Ianni, the second assistant coach to Maurizio Sarri, ran through the touchline and made a fist-pump in front of Mourinho, which triggered a reaction from the United manager.
After the game, however, Mourinho insisted that he talked to Ianni and that he forgave him.
“Not celebrations, bad education. But I also made mistakes in football matches and I will make more. When he came to me to apologise, I accept his apologies.
“Sarri said he would solve the problem with his assistant internally and he (Marco Ianni) then came to me and apologised and I said if he really meant it then okay, I accept.”
