Jose Mourinho was involved in a heated exchange with an interviewer last night, as his AS Roma side were held to a 2-2 draw by minnows Bodo/Glimt at Stadio Olimpico.
The former Chelsea and Manchester United manager clearly felt aggrieved by some of the refereeing decisions during the game, leading to a confrontational interview in the immediate aftermath.
Speaking with former Middlesbrough player-turned journalist Jan Age Fjortoft, Mourinho attempted to get his counterpart to agree with his staunch take on the match officials.
Fjortoft wouldn't bite, however, leading to a classic post-match interview stand-off that went viral on Wednesday night.
A win for Roma would have seen the Italian side leapfrog their Scandinavian opponents in Group C of the UEFA Conference League, but a VAR call disallowed a second-half goal for the hosts, ensuring that the tie ended in a draw.
A still seething Jose then proceeded to unleash his frustration on his interviewer, as the video below demonstrates.
This led to another flashpoint after the ex-Sheffield United forward failed to offer his personal perspective on some of the referee's decisions.
"No, tell me. I want to hear it from the Roma coach," Fjortoft added when pressed to speak by Mourinho.
"No, you tell. No, you tell...Come on! You know it, no?" the 58-year-old snapped back after being asked if he was referring to a penalty incident.
Fjortoft posted the interview to his own Twitter page, explaining why he didn't feel it necessary to give a personal opinion. "I told him his view was more important," the Norwegian wrote.
Just had a little "discussion" with Mourinho after the the game....he wanted me to analyze the referee. I told him his view was more important https://t.co/TNEYi53xw8- Jan Aage Fjørtoft :flag_white:️:rainbow: :flag_no: (@JanAageFjortoft) November 4, 2021
