Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is one manager who does not hold back his emotions . Whether it is during press conferences or a match, Mourinho is always the most animated person in the stadium. And we are talking about a stadium full of screaming fans here. But this time, he outdid himself while celebrating Marouane Fellaini’s late stunner against Young Boys at Old Trafford on November 27.
Manchester United were struggling in the Champions League 2018 draw all along. They would have conceded a goal in the 70th minute to add to the embarrassment had it not been for David de Gea’s sensational goal-line save.
Mourinho was obviously anxious as the clock was ticking and there was not enough time for the Red Devils to score. But midfielder Fellaini’s injury time goal ensured Manchester United qualify for knockout stages of Champions League 2018.
The manager was ecstatic after the goal and smashed a crate of water bottles to celebrate. Even the spectators at the Theater of dreams were amused by Mourinho’s outburst. Soon enough the video got viral on social media:

Water Bottle has spoken out after last night’s melee involving Jose Mourinho:
“Most of us have never had a problem with him, he’s usually quite pleasant, but it was a tough game so when the goal went in, he saw us and just lost it. I’m ok, just a few cuts and bruises..’ pic.twitter.com/bCOlV7aGXn
