People are wondering whether Jose Mourinho was actually happy about winning the EFL Cup

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’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?

It was a strange sight, as the United players enjoyed their success, to see Mourinho looking so down.

Some fans felt that the Portuguese manager, who has won two Champions League titles, could have made a bit more of an effort.

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.

Perhaps he’ll celebrate if he achieves the treble of FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League this season. Perhaps.
