A frustrated Jose Mourinho cut short post-match interviews and claimed he was treated differently than Jurgen Klopp or Arsene Wenger after Manchester United drew with Hull on Wednesday.

The Portuguese boss was seen extremely agitated on the touchline as his side failed to go past the defense of the Premier League strugglers at Old Trafford and had to leave the field with a goalless draw.

A number of decisions angered Mourinho along with supposedly time-wasting by Hull.

He didn’t mention any particular incident after the match but instead questioned about the officials’ few decisions with what seemed to be veiled references to incidents involving rival managers Klopp and Wenger.

On Tuesday night Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp shouted at a fourth official at close quarters, while Arsenal manager Wenger was recently handed a four-match touchline ban for pushing an official.

When asked why he was so angry, Mourinho told: “Well if you don’t know football, you shouldn’t be with the microphone in your hand.”

The reporter was simply stunned and United boss walked away from the interview but he did elaborate further during the post-match press conference.

Mourinho, who was slapped with a two-game touchline bans this term and a stadium ban last season, told reporters:

“Don’t ask me questions that I cannot answer. You know clearly that I am different. The rules for me are different.

“I am different in everything, I watch my team play in a hotel, I was forbidden to go to the stadium, my assistant (Faria) had a six-match stadium ban and he didn’t touch anyone.

“Yesterday one fourth official told to a manager, ‘I enjoy very much your passion, so do what you want to do’.

“Today I was told, ‘Sit down or I have to send you to the stands’. So everything is different for me.”

He left the media room just answering these three questions.
