With a team being blamed of the boring Old Testament faithful This season, Jose Mourinho's manager at least provides his own pyrotechnology on the touch line.
The Portuguese wins 91 minutes of Marouane Fellaini's death against Young Boys by throwing a crack of beverage bottles to the floor, used his post-game interview to give his "loved ones" message and finally to declare his keeper "the best in the world".
Let's go into it.
And you know I'm really & # 39;
First of all, the celebration. Kurt Cobain, leading Nirvana, noted specially satisfying gigs, sometimes only individual songs, by reducing his guitar to squares against the nearest amp.
Mourinho sang his inner rock god as he took his emotion on a basket of bottles.
The Old Trafford did not have a lot of obligation for a water advisor since Eric Cantona was seeking his opinion on the international team of Didier Deschamps.
Mourinho was criticized for his response by Rio Ferdinand on BT Sport, with the former United defender suggesting that she was trying to get a look.
"Those who comment on football, many of them have not been on the touch line," he said. "For those who talk about expressing frustration on the bench, we will invite them to sit down as a manager.
"They may prefer a lot of holiday in Barbados, and they can go to the TV and use their electric phones.
"That's a lot more comfortable than being on the bench. I'm pretty sure that a football manager would not criticize someone else about what they're doing on the touch line. I & Those who have a nice life, it's different. "
Mourinho is not the first manager to disperse water bottles along the touch line. Arsene Wenger was sent off for a bottle of water in frustration when he managed Arsenal at Old Trafford in 2009.
And Liverpool's manager Jurgen Klopp apologized I'll throw the floor in the last season with Arsenal.
14 or 14
Mourinho was not in any way to discuss his or her team's small statistic impression either.
United is closer to the bottom of the Premier League or the top, giving more than four times as many goals as Manchester City and Liverpool competitors.
Graphic & expected goals & # 39; produced by Counter Michael Caley after the weekend draw with Crystal Palace the remarkable stalemate showed exactly what they deserved.
"The most important thing is to apply and to some of my favorite lovers, and those who like stats, I have 14 seasons in the Champions League and 14 times my teams have qualified to group actions , "said Mourinho.
"The season I was not in the Champions League, I won Europa League."
The Portuguese has done his homework. Nothing of a place on that estate.

And I know he wants to wait & # 39;
Mourinho had a goalkeeper's compliment, after David de Gea produced a great stop to keep the United level earlier in the game.
A 28-year-old is committed to Old Trafford until the summer, with the club option extended to 2020.
"He's a world class player, the best goalkeeper in the world," said Mourinho.
"I know he wants to wait and the agent wants to do what the player wants. The board wants him to stay and work on that."
