Special Punch

Does this man look violent to you? Oh, wait.

I can understand if Jose Mourinho was a little miffed yesterday evening. After all, he had just watched his Internazionale Milan side lose 2-0 to Manchester United and drop out of the Champions League competition. Although he was gracious in defeat, both in his meeting with Sir Alex on the touchline and at his press conference, perhaps The Special One had something seething inside him that just needed to come out?

When that anger came out, was it directed at Zlatan Ibrahimovic or Adriano, both of whom hit the post? Or was it at Julio Cesar for "letting" in 2 goals? Or was it at Patrick Vieira, the once-feared patroller of Highbury, for being such a disappointment during the match that he was replaced with Sulley Muntari?

No, it appears that Mourinho vented his anger on one of the numerous Manc supporters who had made his day at Old Trafford completely miserable. Apparently this lovable bloke decided to wait outside near the Inter bus and serenade Jose with chants of "You're going home." Unsurprisingly, Jose was not pleased. Surprisingly, he did something about it, allegedly punching the man in the face. The Red Devils supporter went to the nearest police station and filed a complaint, and now the Greater Manchester Police have asked Man United for CCTV footage of the area in an attempt to clarify what happened.

Manchester United have confirmed that they aware of the allegation and are working with the police to provide them with the footage. Naturally, Inter have denied any wrongdoing on the part of Mourinho. There is no word from Jose's momma on whether he had a tough time keeping his hands to himself as a child.

If only he had raped someone in a hotel, he would have gotten off clean.

“All of Italy will be happy that Inter went out,” he said last night. “I don’t care, though. I know that I won.”

This is Jose Mourinho.

I believe his actions are justified by the mere fact the fan was a ManU supporter.

Jose only punched the man after singing

"You've never BEEN to Mancheste. . .oh wait, here you are!"

(WV Word: Prodi- perfect for Serie A FAIL)

I feel like Mourinho has become distinctly less cool over the past couple of years, specifically since Chelsea fired him.

Old Mourinho would have rocked a suit last night, not some dopey polo shirt.

He probably made fun of his yorkie.
