Jose Mourinho Ran Onto The Pitch To Stop Tammy Abraham From Being Sent Off Against AC Milan

​Jose Mourinho ran onto the pitch during AC Milan vs. AS Roma to stop Tammy Abraham from being sent off in a crazy moment. 

Mourinho took matters into his own hands as he got involved in an on-pitch fracas during his side's defeat to Milan on Thursday. 

With the score 2-0 to Milan - following goals from Olivier Giroud and Junior Messias​, Abraham, who was on a booking, got himself into a bit of bother. 

He clashed with the opposition and risked picking up another caution until Mourinho brilliantly intervened. 

The former Manchester United and Tottenham manager stormed the pitch and dragged the England striker away from the incident to prevent a red card. 

It proved to be a shrewd move as the ex-Chelsea man hit the back of the net just moments later, cleverly flicking home in the 40th minute. 

But Roma failed to turnaround the deficit, with Rafael Leao​ adding a third for Milan in the 81st minute. 

Mourinho's side also went onto pick up not one but TWO red cards as Rick Karsdorp​ and Gianluca Mancini both received their marching orders late on. ​

The 3-1 defeat leaves Roma in seventh place, level on points with cross-town rivals Lazio. 

Speaking after the game, the Portuguese gaffer aimed a dig at Milan.

"I was offered the [Milan] job three years ago," the former Inter Milan manager revealed in his post-match press conference. 

"I thought about it for three days, but I am so happy to have taken that decision.

"I am a professional, but there is still space for emotion. I am passionate about Roma and I will give everything for this club.​

"Looking to what happened today, I am twice as happy about my decision."
