Anthony Martial Finally Opens up On His Feud With Jose Mourinho

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was involved in ugly scenes at the end of his return to Stamford Bridge.

Marco Ianni had pumped his fists in front of the United bench before there was a confrontation in the tunnel.

The Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho does have a tendency of finding himself in the bad books of quite a few players and at Manchester United, there are plenty of reports that are stating that he has lost more than half of his players in the dressing room.

"I've seen him [Pogba] marked man for man before", Redknapp told Sky Sports. What I did here today I will do in Madrid, in Milan, in Porto, the reaction from the fans is not up to me.

"I'm not annoyed with anything". Maurizio saw and said he would take care of it internally and to accept his apology, which I did.

The Chelsea manager had also run across United's technical area to celebrate Barkley's equaliser, scored after United had come back from a goal behind - Antonio Rudiger's first-half header - with two of their own from Anthony Martial.

Redknapp stated this following United's Premier League 2-2 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.


"I don't know where they came from".

Two weeks after his United team overturned a 2-0 deficit to beat Newcastle 3-2 at Old Trafford - a result which may have saved his job - his players nearly performed a similar trick at Chelsea and Mourinho was central to that with his tactics and motivation.

Sarri said that his side had been in control for the first hour but had then tried to pass the ball long rather than their usual style of conserving possession and building attacks. "Then after the goal of Martial, we did not play our football".

And there was enough in this game to anger and delight him - a awful opening goal, when Pogba lost his man, a stirring fightback, a performance which highlighted Martial's brilliant potential and then the gut-wrenching Barkley equaliser, just as the points seemed to be in the bag.

"I am disappointed with the last 30 minutes", he told the BBC. "We deserved to win but we shipped the goal in the last minute and it cost us".

"I have spoken to a member of my staff and have dealt with this immediately. We always tried to play, there was no time-wasting".

"After that his assistant came to me in Sarri's office and apologised to me".
