Jose Mourinho Responds to Touchline Handshake Query: “that’s really a bad question”

Classic Jose Mourinho in the postgame protocol today. Manchester United went to Stoke City, where they have not won since 2013, and came away with just one point, drawing with the Potters 2-2.

After the final whistle, Mourinho made a beeline for his coaching staff and did not shake hands with his counter-part Mark Hughes. Apparently, Mourinho is not a huge fan of who Hughes behaved on the touchline during this fixture.

Hughes became just the second manager to go undefeated in four straight Premier League matches against Mourinho. Ronald Koeman is the first; and he accomplished a five game undefeated streak.

After the game, in his post-match interview Mourinho showed that he is already in mid-season form from a media opportunities stand point.

Asked if he was disappointed there wasn’t a handshake, and if it would be nice and polite if everyone shook hands, Mourinho refused to answer the question; sort of.

He actually said a lot in his “not answering.”

“You know I want to be polite with yo. I prefer not to answer the question,” Mourinho responded.

“Your question is a bad question, it’s really a bad question, because it looks like it’s my fault, it’s my problem, and your question is not correct. I’m sorry.”

Hey, at least Mourinho apologized at the very end.
