Manchester United secured their biggest victory of the season last night, as they got one over on Juventus on their own turf.
The game itself was an intriguing affair. From the get-go, it was close-knit and tight, however, the visitors eventually came out on top with two late goals.
Following the match, manager Jose Mourinho began to goad the Juventus fans by cupping his ear, gesturing ‘I can’t hear you’. After Juve fans giving him stick all night, while also not forgetting the self-proclaimed Special One’s Inter Milan ties, it would have been easy for the Portuguese to get caught up in the moment.
While speaking in the aftermath of the match, pundit Paul Scholes told Mourinho to win with a bit of class, before adding there was no real need for it.
“You need to win with a bit of class,” Scholes said on BT Sport, per Goal.
“I don’t think there is any need for that. Go over and clap the away fans, shake the manager’s hand.
“It is needless but that is just the way he is.”
Honestly, I love Scholsey, we all do, but this is just Mourinho being Mourinho. He’s always done it, we should expect it to happen. I have no problem with the manager doing it, because he’s only giving it back to the fans that have made jibes at him for literally years. As the old saying goes, don’t give it if you can’t take it back.
He did shake the manager’s hand, he even went up to a few Juve players to shake their hand, too. He never really harmed anyone with his celebrations, so let’s just move on and get on with it.
The siege mentality is building…
