Ten Hag channels inner-Jose Mourinho in response to Dalot’s red card

Erik ten Hag was not happy with the way in which Diogo Dalot got sent off towards the end in the 0-0 draw against Liverpool.

When asked about what he wanted to say about it, the gaffer said: “If I say something about that… well I’ll leave it. Maybe you can do it [say something about it. You judge it. I will leave it with you.”

This is definitely a Jose Mourinho-esque comment from the Dutch gaffer and similar to an iconic post-match remark from the Portuguese manager.

Mourinho had once said ‘If I speak, I will be in big trouble. I don’t want to be trouble’ after Chelsea’s 1-0 loss to Aston Villa in 2014.

Ten Hag has every right to be fuming with the decision because Dalot did not even actually touch the ball leading to the throw-in, which caused his enraged reaction and the sending-off.

Despite that, the Red Devils were able to hold on to get a big point and recover from two bad losses.
