Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho seemed to attempt a little dig at Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp about over-celebrating.
The Portuguese tactician has a history of using the press to his advantage, using outlandish remarks to take the focus off his team and his players and onto himself.
While this used to work a charm some years ago when Mourinho was one of the most successful managers in the world, it now appears slightly desperate as he seems to be taking yet another team backwards.
Things ended similarly for him at Chelsea in his second spell, and there has been growing talk that Mourinho may now be on borrowed time at Old Trafford.
Speaking at his press conference today, Mourinho made the bizarre claim that he doesn’t like to celebrate wildly in front of the cameras like some other managers in the Premier League.
The 55-year-old has made similar comments before and it seems likely it’s a dig at Klopp, who is known for being a very expressive and passionate figure on the touch line.
There’s nothing wrong with that, of course, and Mourinho also seems to forget that he’s more often than not behaved in a similar manner, making these jibes look more than a little hypocritical…

Mourinho, 'I know the majority of the stadiums are used to the winning manager jumping around, to put his face in front of the camera, with me that is not happening, normally when I win I'm the 1st one to leave'—remember these matches Jose? ?? pic.twitter.com/QEmUtSPJ9A

And who could forget this, which was literally just a few nights ago?
