Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho was involved in ugly scenes right at the end of Saturday's 2-2 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho restrained

Mourinho appeared to grab the member of the Chelsea staff just inside the tunnel, before the pair were surrounded by other members of staff and stewards who managed to separate them, and send a clearly still enraged Mourinho back to his seat. The players then replicated the scuffle with a heated debate in the centre circle before the match restarted for the final 20 seconds or so.

At the final whistle Mourinho repeatedly held up three fingers to the Chelsea fans to remind them of this three Premier League titles at the club.

I won three!
