Matic issues strong warning to Man United teammates after Stoke draw

Matic issues strong warning to Man United teammates after Stoke draw

The tiff between the pair came after Hughes had pushed Mourinho when the latter encroached into the Stoke manager's technical area.

"Jose wanted to reorganise his defence after a foul and Hughes pushed him as he walked over and told Jose to f-- off".

After refusing to shake the hand of his rival manager Mark Hughes and arrogantly proclaiming his opponents were little more than long-ball merchants intent on destroying the attractive game, this was Groundhog Day for seasoned Mourinho watchers. It all started in 2009 with Sam Allardyce. I prefer not to answer the question because your question is a bad question.

Mourinho was asked: "Do you think it'd be nice at the end of a game like that if everyone shook hands, Mark Hughes a little disappointed there wasn't a handshake?" Sometimes managers of top-six clubs don't take negative results too kindly.

"Maybe he reacted in the wrong way".

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored a goal in each half as Hughes' men ended United's 100 per cent record in the Premier League this season by earning a 2-2 draw at bet365 stadium on Sunday (AEST). "It makes it look like it's my fault but that's not right".

Hughes was confused by Mourinho's behaviour, adding: "I seem to get involved in handshake issues". One team tried to win, one team tried to get the point but they fought hard to get that point. United enjoyed the bulk of possession and had more opportunities yet it was far from one-way traffic.

"They did well and physically very strong and they probably deserved the point".

Kurt Zouma was one of three good central defensive performers for Stoke City against Manchester United on Saturday. "You can mention the amount of finance they can throw at their team but it is what it is, we know that".

"I thought we went toe to toe with them", he said.
