Man United and City involved in tunnel burst-up after derby
Manchester United and Manchester City players were reportedly in turnnel bust-up after City’s 2-1 win at Old Trafford on Sunday.
United players and staff were reportedly unhappy at the way the visitors celebrated deeming it “disrespectful.”
City’s celebrations were said to be “very vocal” and accompanied by loud music that could be heard by United players in the home dressing room.
Daniel Taylor of the Guardian reported Manchester assistant coach Mikel Arteta was left bloodied in the fight. United striker Romelu Lukaku was reported to be “prominently involved,” though no video of the fight has been made available at this time.
Mourinho told reporters City was “protected by luck” in Sunday’s 2-1 loss that saw Nicolas Otamendi score the winning goal in the 54th minute.
“I think they are a very good team, they are lucky, they have decisions in their favour,” Mourinho said. “My first reaction is that I feel sorry for Michael Oliver. The referee is a human being and he tried his best. He was very committed to have a good match, which I think he had, but made one mistake, which was a crucial mistake.”
