When it’s all said and done it could be a handshake (or lack thereof) that’s proves to be the difference between Inter coming out victorious in their Champions League clash with Manchester United. OK, that might be taking it a bit too far, but what was really going on with Mourinho and Ferguson yesterday? The “former” Special One said it was no big deal that the two didn’t meet on the sidelines after the match.
“My dugout is a special dugout because we have a door which gives me the chance to leave it directly,” Mourinho explained.
“Yesterday I left a £300 bottle of wine in the hotel with a note saying we would meet each other after the game at Old Trafford.
“I am always close to him and we are always friends and I will be there for him after the second game.” (The Independent)
Who’s shocked to hear that Mourinho has a “special dugout”? Not me, that’s for damn sure. Whilst the non-meeting between the two managers was highly scrutinized due to their comments before the match, it seems that both are playing it off as business as usual. We’ll see if they meet together after the match if Manchester United wins. Mourinho won’t have a “special door” to get him out of that awkward confrontation.
