Jose Mourinho unhappy with difference in treatment from officialsPublished February 1, 2017
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho appeared to take a sly dig at Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp following a frustrating 0-0 draw with Hull City at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have now lost pace in the race for the Champions League places after firing a blank against the relegation-threatened Tigers, while `Manchester City eased past West Ham.
After watching his side’s ninth draw in the league, Mourinho bemoaned “deja vu”, but appeared more frustrated by the reaction to his antics on the sidelines from the fourth official.
In last night’s draw between Liverpool and Chelsea at Anfield, Klopp apologised to the fourth official after reacting angrily, with a friendly response, and Mourinho believes he got off lightly.

“I don’t want to speak much,” he said.
“I pay lots of fines, more than others, Yesterday a manager was told ‘I love your emotion and because I love it, no problem.
“I was told to sit down or I’ll be sent to the stands.
“They don’t like my emotion.”
The Portuguese coach credited Hull and his fellow countryman Marco Silva for their display.
“I fon’t criticise Hull,” he continued.
“They are battling at the bottom of the league, it is a difficult position.
“Every point is big, they tried to see what they could do, they pushed the limits.”
