After the initially awarded penalty to City was saved by Hugo Lloris, his following challenge on Raheem Sterling was judged not a foul by VAR after initially been given by referee Mike Dean.
It all seemed calm and happy at the bench for Jose until his assistant reminded him of the yellow card not given to the already cautioned Raheem Sterling.
Mou’s brain chemicals spontaneously burst into a reaction, as José and his assistant charged towards the official over the touchline in tormenting fashion, asking for a yellow card for simulation.
This is bloody brilliant. Mourinho was celebrating Lloris’ penalty save on Gundogan but then when he remembered Sterling had a yellow card and Mike Dean didn’t book him for the second time for the dive, he was absolutely furious.— FutbolBible (@FutbolBible) February 2, 2020
Although it turned out just fine for Spurs afterwards as Steven Bergwijn and Son capitalized on Zinchenko’s red card as Tottenham came out with a 2-0 win.
While Spurs maintain 5th spot, the gap between Liverpool and the champions looks towering with 22 points separating the two.
More pressure builds on Pep as the league title looks to slip away from City’s hands. Nevertheless, the internet has been provided with another classic Jose meme format.
