Greater Manchester Police are investigating an allegation of assault against Jose Mourinho following Wednesday’s Champions League tie between Manchester United and Inter at Old Trafford.
It has been alleged Mourinho punched a supporter as he left the stadium following his side’s 2-0 defeat.
Greater Manchester Police have contacted United to request CCTV footage of the area and have confirmed a complaint has been made.
“Shortly before midnight last night a man reported that he had been punched in the face outside Old Trafford,” a police statement read. “We are investigating an allegation of common assault.”
United would only confirm they are aware of the allegation and are making no further comment.
The allegation compounded a bad night for Mourinho, who watched his team crash out of the Champions League following their defeat.
The former Chelsea and Porto manager came under sustained attack from the Italian media for his failure to get Inter beyond the first knockout round.
”If anyone wishes to criticise my team, they will have to fight me,” he said at one point, those comments coming via an official interpreter from Italian.
