"I don’t speak about stupid things" Mourinho

It is understood that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho snubbed Stoke City boss Mark Hughes twice after he tried to shake his hand. This took place after Saturday’s 2-2 draw at the Bet365 Stadium.


After passing each other again in the corridor, Hughes is understood to have again offered his hand but it was ignored by Mourinho.

Mourinho insisted he wasn’t to blame and was irritated when asked about the incident saying: “I don’t speak about stupid things, I’m too old for that, talking about stupid things is for stupid people.

"I prefer not to answer the question about handshakes. It’s a bad question. It makes it look like it’s my fault but that’s not right."

It was reported that Mourinho also received a push in the chest from Hughes.

Afterwards Hughes said: “I pushed him because he was in my technical area. Maybe that is why he didn’t want to shake my hand. It has to be viewed as a negative result for him. Sometimes managers of top-six clubs don’t take negative results too kindly.

“Maybe he reacted in the wrong way. In fairness I have my history with handshakes. Maybe it’s me.”
