Jose Mourinho's Priceless Reaction When Told Raheem Sterling Was On A Yellow Card
Jose Mourinho went full Jose Mourinho yet again in Spurs 2-0 win this afternoon after he realised Raheem Sterling had already been yellow card when he went down under the challenge of Hugo Lloris in the penalty area.
Sterling was fortunate to avoid a red card 12 minutes in when he badly mistimed a tackle on England colleague Dele Alli but VAR elected not to send him off.
At the end of the half when Ilkay Gundogan missed from 12 yards, after VAR had eventually awarded a penalty for Serge Aurier's foul on Sergio Aguero, Sterling went down when Lloris rushed out to collect the rebound.
No penalty was given, nor was Sterling booked again for what might have been perceived as simulation.
And when Mourinho was told by his assistant Joao Sacramento that Sterling was already on a yellow, his reaction was absolutely priceless.

Jose Mourinho's reaction to Hugo Lloris saving Ilkay Gundogan's penalty and then realising that Raheem Sterling could potentially be given a second yellow card shows the full spectrum of the managerial emotional rollercoaster :soccer:#PL #TOTMCI pic.twitter.com/vL6iRAXs07
One second he's laughing and drinking his water, the next he's leaping out of his seat to remonstrate to fourth official Graham Scott on the touchline. Talk about a change of emotions.
Mourinho is responsible for a whole lot of hilarious memes over the years, from the "I prefer not to speak" interview to the time he threw some water bottles when celebrating a last-minute Manchester United winner against Sevilla.
And we've definitely got a couple more to add to the collection today, with Mourinho also reacting animatedly when he was shown a replay of Sterling's "clear red card" challenge on Alli by his right-hand man.
