Jose Mourinho plays down touchline melee after 'awful' Chelsea draw

Jose Mourinho plays down touchline melee after 'awful' Chelsea draw

The Manchester United manager leapt to his feet and was held back by stewards after Chelsea coach Marco Ianni goaded him following Ross Barkley's late goal. Security staff had to get involved to restore order, though the two managers shook hands after an eventful conclusion.

"After the match I spoke with Jose and immediately I understood we were wrong", Sarri said. I have seen the match from the bench and now I have to analyse it. We made a mistake. We were on the wrong side of the situation.

Sarri is yet to decide if he is will punish Ianni.

"If I speak to a member of staff and am very hard (with Ianni) I can not come here and tell everything because then I am not credible with the staff".

"We are talking about a coach that has won everything, everywhere, so I think you have to respect him". I have to view everything. The Football Association will have to wait for Dean's report and view the footage before deciding whether to discipline either club.

Marco Ianni followed Maurizio Sarri from Napoli to Chelsea this summer.

"In fact I would say sometimes I think it's a reckless approach away from home or even at home in games. He apologised and I accepted". But then the young fellow came and he also apologised and I told him: "I accept your apology. I said: "I did mistakes when I was your age".

The 13th century Tha Pae Gate is part of an ancient wall that forms a square around Chiang Mai's inner city. But once she found out what had happened, she said it felt like "bricks of cement dropped on my shoulders".

Ross Barkley scored in the sixth minute of injury time to level the match at 2-2 after Anthony Martial had scored twice in the second half to cancel out Antonio Rudiger's opener.

Chelsea had most of the possession and looked in control until Martial thumped in the equaliser in the 55th minute against the run of play after Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga had kept out a close-range Juan Mata shot. "Normally when I'm losing I never have five or six or seven minutes".

"If something happened where they lost the opponent or something that made them that way because they knew it clearly which opponent was theirs". "But that is football".

Former Arsenal midfielder Merson believes Chelsea FC will inflict a fourth league defeat of the season upon Mourinho and his Manchester United side to leave their rivals toiling in mid-table.

Sarri was quick to apologise to Mourinho and said he would take action behind closed doors.

"We defend corners mixed, some players in the zone, some man to man", he added.
