Sheffield United Manager Chris Wilder Looked In Shock When A Humble Jose Mourinho Interrupted His Interview

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder looked taken aback when a classy Jose Mourinho interrupted his post-match interview to offer his congratulations.

In Thursday night's Premier League clash at Bramall Lane, Wilder's side managed to recover from a number of disappointing results since the restart to record an emphatic 3-1 win against a despondent Spurs. Norwegian midfielder Sander Berge opened the scoring just after the half-hour mark with a tidy finish and in the second half, substitute Lys Mousset made it 2-0 after some slack defending.

In-form striker Oli McBurnie then sealed the win in the 84th minute and, despite a mere consolation goal in the 90th minute from Harry Kane, it was ultimately another poor day at the office for Jose Mourinho's men, who now sit nine points behind fourth place Chelsea for that all-important Champions League place.

After the final-whistle, Mourinho warned his players that the club face "big, big trouble" if they cannot remain motivated for the run-in but as his opposition manager spoke in front of the camera, the former Manchester United and Chelsea boss decided to make his feelings known to Wilder in a refreshing post-match interview.

"Class act by the way," Wilder said after Mourinho left the interview.

"His team has just got beat 3-1 and he's had a really poor decision go against him. That speaks volumes for what he is about."

In his own post-match interview, Mourinho made it clear that he thinks football is going in the wrong direction after another VAR controversy during the game.

"The referee is in the office," said Mourinho. "I never complain at the guy with the whistle because it's not the referee any more.

"I think the referee should always be the man on the pitch and the people in the office should just support and assist. That's not the way it is. The referee who is not very good on the pitch, we cannot expect that he's good in the office.

"We're going in a direction that's really bad for the beautiful game, the game that everybody fell in love with."

Thoughts on last night's game and Mourinho's gesture towards Wilder after the full-time whistle?
