Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and his squad return home after Chelsea touchline row

JOSE MOURINHO returns to Manchester after his sensational bust-up with Chelsea staff in the dramatic 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.

The United boss usually takes advantage of trips to London by staying overnight with his family – but instead decided to travel up north with his squad on Saturday.

United fought back to 2-1 after going a goal behind at Chelsea, but left with just a point after Ross Barkley’s injury-time equaliser.

That goal sparked a touchline row after Mourinho, 55, reacted furiously to Blues coach Marco Ianni’s in-your-face celebrations.

The Special One had to be held back by stewards, staff and players as he tried to chase Ianni down the dugout.

He later revealed: “What happened was with [Maurizio] Sarri’s assistant and Sarri was first to come to me and say he would resolve the problem internally with him.

“His assistant came to me in Sarri’s office and apologised to me.

“I said if you really feel that way I accept your apology and forget it, because I also made lots of mistakes in my career. I’m not going to kill you because of one.

“He apologised and I accepted it.”

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri confirmed: “I spoke with Jose immediately after the game and realised that we were wrong.

“I spoke with my staff and then agreed to say sorry. We made a mistake and we were in the wrong on the situation.

“Will there be any action against Ianni? At the moment I don’t know. I have to speak to him face to face because I want to be sure that he understands it was a big mistake.”
