Jose Mourinho smashes water bottles off the ground after Marouane Fellaini rescues Man United

"You just don’t do that as a coach.

Manchester United went 276-minutes without scoring a goal at home in the Champions League. For some context, the Republic of Ireland have gone 264-minutes without a goal at home in a competitive match. That's how bad it has been for Man United in recent months.

Jose Mourinho's side played out a dour, insipid and ultimately pointless game of football with Young Boys on Tuesday night at Old Trafford.

Yes, they won it in the end and assured their passage into the knockout stages of the Champions League. But it was a struggle.

United had most of the possession and had a couple of efforts on goal in the Champions League tie.

But didn't find a way past their limited opponents until Marouane Fellaini's stoppage-time goal which sparked an extremely animated response from his manager.

Mourinho picked up a tray of water bottles and slammed them off the ground.

Mourinho had been animated throughout the game.

The former Chelsea boss was critical of the attitude of some of his players last week, and didn't hide his frustration with Marcus Rashford on Tuesday evening.

Rashford squandered a chance in the first half, which is bound to happen when you're a 21-year-old striker. But Mourinho wasn't happy and gestured to the crowd following the miss.

 

BT Sport presenter Gary Lineker called Mourinho out over his gesture.
