After the final whistle had been blown, a scuffle ensued between players and members of the technical staff. Roma's Rick Karsdorp was particularly infuriated and was putting his point across to the match referee Massimiliano Irrati.

Irrati had retrieved a red card from his pocket when Mourinho approached him. But once the veteran head coach saw the card, he took a quick about turn and left the scene of the confrontation.

Mourinho has built a reputation for himself as an abrasive manager who always speaks his mind. He was aggrieved by certain decisions during the game and was booked for it.

Fans were quick to note that Mourinho did not involve himself in the scuffle, noting that he had learned his lesson. Last season, he was red-carded during Roma's clash against Napoli and had to give his instructions from the stands.

'The Special One' did not want to be away from the touchline for his next game.
