Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho was reportedly involved in an altercation with multiple Manchester City players following City’s 2-1 win at Old Trafford on Sunday, according to reports from Sky Sports news.
According to Daniel Taylor of the Guardian, he reported that Manchester City assistant coach Mikel Arteta was left bloodied in the fight. Man United striker Romelu Lukaku was reported to be “prominently involved,” though no video of the fight has been made available at this time.
Mourinho told reporters Guardiola’s side was “protected by luck” in Sunday’s 2-1 loss that saw Nicolas Otamendi score the winning goal in the 54th minute.
Mourinho said: “I think they are a very good team, they are lucky, they have decisions in their favour.”
“My first reaction is that I feel sorry for Michael Oliver. The referee is a human being and he tried his best. He was very committed to have a good match, which I think he had, but made one mistake, which was a crucial mistake.”
The loss effectively ended all our chances of winning the Premier League table. Right now, City sits 11 points ahead of second-place Man United following the first 16 matches of the season.
