Hughes accuses Mourinho of snubbing handshake after United-Stoke game

Stoke City v Manchester United: match preview

Lashing out at a journalist, Mourinho stated: "I want to be polite with you, and I prefer not to answer the question because your question is really a bad question".

The 29-year-old believes the blossoming partnership between Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku is certainly among those for United, with both forwards on target again to take their collective goal tally for the season to six. "It makes it look like it's my fault but that's not right", he said. Mourinho also believed Hughes had told the referee, Neil Swarbrick, to send him to the stands for encroaching into the Stoke technical area.

Former United frontman Sparky Hughes saw his charges take the lead, as summer acquisition Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting drove home a fine passing move.

"Maybe it was because it has to be viewed as a negative result for him, coming to Stoke when everybody expects them to beat us".

Cape Town - Mark Hughes was left puzzled after Jose Mourinho did not engage in the customary post-match handshake following their teams' 2-2 draw on Saturday. "I have to get used to it sometimes".

Nemanja Matic has insisted that Manchester United will need to maintain the fighting spirit seen against Stoke City to challenge for the Premier League title. Maybe he reacted in the wrong way. "I seem to get involved in handshake issues!"

After 38 games, Plateau United amassed 66 points to win their first ever league title and become the 19th Champions of the league.

"They defended a lot and it is becoming quite trendy in the Premier League, this way of defending now, but they did well and physically they were very strong and they probably deserved the point".

"We didn't allow them as much space and everything I asked the guys to do, they fulfilled".
