Phew – after winning a phenomenal EFL Cup final 3-2 against Southampton, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was sure to be delighted, wasn’t he?
Mourinho first MUFC manager to win a major trophy in his first season. But looking like someone ran over his cat— Matt Dickinson (@DickinsonTimes) February 26, 2017
Mourinho’s side had gone from 2-0 up to 2-2, only for Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score late on with a header.
That’s got to warrant a grin, hasn’t it Jose?
When will Jose smile?— John Brewin (@JohnBrewin_) February 26, 2017
Understand Mourinho saying he's not wanting to take limelight from his players but he could at least look a little happier 😂🙈 #EFLCupFinal— Michelle Owen (@MichelleOwen7) February 26, 2017
It was a strange sight, as the United players enjoyed their success, to see Mourinho looking so down.

Mourinho looks so grumpy— Alex (@alexllyod92) February 26, 2017
Some fans felt that the Portuguese manager, who has won two Champions League titles, could have made a bit more of an effort.
Bit disappointed in Mourinho if I'm honest. Didn't even smile. Even if it's not happy with performance, it's a cup final. Liven up.— Hesham Bilal-Hafiz (@hesham786) February 26, 2017
It was a good day for Mourinho’s personal statistics as well.
The former Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid manager mentioned that he was emotional, so maybe he was just feeling pensive.

Meanwhile, some fans understood their manager’s reaction.
I'm glad Mourinho didn't look entirely happy. Doesn't want the players to become complacent, we have a treble to win.— ManUtdMindset (@ManUtdMindset) February 26, 2017
Perhaps he’ll celebrate if he achieves the treble of FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League this season. Perhaps.
