Some Manchester United fans ‘in tears’ after what Jose Mourinho did to Anthony Martial during Chelsea draw


The France international grabbed two fantastic goals at Stamford Bridge to complete a comeback

Anthony Martial enjoyed a memorable afternoon at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon as his two goals helped Manchester United claim a 2-2 draw against Chelsea.

Ross Barkley’s late equaliser sparked furious scenes in the away dugout as a member of the Blues’ backroom staff appeared to goad Mourinho, forcing a furious reaction from the Portuguese.

However, it was his various interactions with Martial during the game which pleased several United fans.

After grabbing what appeared to be a winning goal in front of the Manchester United fans, Mourinho was obviously elated with his forward.

And then, after tremendous running and lots of hard work, the former Chelsea boss visibly pumped his fists and went onto the pitch to pat Martial on the back to congratulate him for his diligence.

Shortly afterwards, the Portuguese then had a huge cuddle with the 22-year-old as he was substituted with a beaming smile.

The duo have endured a somewhat rocky relationship in the past, with Mourinho openly criticising the France international for his poor performances.

The relationship between the pair appeared to hit rock bottom when, after leaving United’s pre-season tour to be with his pregnant wife, Martial was fined by the Red Devils boss.

However, their moments of compassion at Stamford Bridge had many United fans simply delirious – with some even in tears.
