Every man in the Stoke dugout got a goodbye gesture from the Portuguese apart from Sparky who had angered him with a shove
JOSE MOURINHO walked out on his post-match BBC interview after a question about him snubbing Mark Hughes’ handshake.
After the 2-2 draw, the Manchester United boss made a beeline for what seemed like every member of the Stoke backroom staff apart from their manager.
Hughes gestured to the TV camera closest to the dugout to capture the actions of the Portuguese and Match of the Day reporter Steve Wilson quizzed him on the move afterwards.
After a long pause and deep breath, Mourinho said: “I want to be polite with you and I prefer not to answer the question because your question is really a bad question.
“It is a bad question because it looks like it’s my fault, it’s my problem and your question is not correct, I am sorry.
And, in a BT Sport interview, Mourinho added: “I don’t speak about stupid things, I am too old for that.
“Stupid things are for stupid people.”
Ex-Old Trafford striker Hughes admitted he might have sparked their row by shoving the former Chelsea boss out of his technical area.

Sparky also thought it could have been sour grapes after United finally dropped some points after a perfect start to the Prem campaign.
Stoke boss Hughes said: “I pushed him because he was in my technical area.
“Maybe that’s why he didn’t want to shake my hand.
“Maybe it’s because it has to be viewed as a negative result for him, coming to Stoke when everybody expected them to beat us.
“It’s a negative. Sometimes managers of top-six clubs don’t take negative results too kindly.
“Sometimes, because they’re not used to having to take negative results, sometimes they react in the wrong way.
“Maybe he reacted in the wrong way.
“In fairness, I’ve got history with non-handshakes so maybe it’s me! Who knows?”
