Mourinho's reaction to his side's defeat at Goodison on Saturday typified the lack of class he showed over the summer in pursuing John Stones (Alex Livesey/Getty Images)
Jose Mourinho's frustration at having to wait for Roberto Martinez to complete his post-match interview before he could beat a hasty exit back to London was caught on tape after Everton's handsome 3-1 win over Chelsea on Saturday.
The Portuguese interrupted his opposite number while he was taking questions from the Liverpool Echo's Greg O'Keeffe where he told Martinez that he should have allowed the visiting manager to get his press duties done first because he "had to travel".
The Catalan responded by saying it was neither his nor Everton's decision before joking with the reporter that he preferred the Mourinho of a year ago after Chelsea had beaten the Blues 6-3.
Far from the "furious bust-up" between the two managers that many media outlets have tried to sensationalise it as, the exchange was brief and Mourinho is heard saying "fucking hell" before apparently stomping off.
The incident typified Mourinho's mood after the game – it wasn't much better before-hand either; he walked out of an interview with BT Sport when the topic turned to John Stones – in which he bemoaned Chelsea's luck and tried to argue that his team were unfortunate to lose the contest, that despite them having just two efforts on target in the entire game.
The loss, the Champions' third in fives games and their second in three seasons at Goodison Park, put another dent in their hopes of retaining the Premier League title and increased the pressure on their manager.
Everton, meanwhile, took their tally for the season to eight points with a morale-boosting victory on the back of Steven Naismith's "perfect" hat-trick.

Perhaps someone reminded him that it was only a few years ago that Ancelotti had been sacked in the Goodison corridors after yet another humiliating defeat at the hands of such a little club!

I've watched the match 3 times now and the camera was one Moanreamio more than anything else.
Well done Bobby, hope this is the start of something special. You won some fans back so don't screw up in your next match.

Unlike Jose who seems a tormented soul even when winning the premiership, he's definitely lost the plot and probably his job which is amazingly self destructive.

What a classy manager we have. He might talk sometimes like the Delphic Oracle but our Boss is a gentleman and makes up for froth spouted by Chairman Bill.

JM Is a classless clown though, it kills him to admit that his team were second best. I hope he gets the sack.
I do think in January we should put in an offer in for Hazard. Lol

As Ross said, he was behaving badly when the pressure was mounting at Madrid.
I hope that this is a continuing trend and he implodes along with his ugly team of horrid shysters.
I wonder what Stones is thinking about his suitors now?

The man is clearly under the cosh; there is little rational basis to these sorts of outbursts. He is momentarily losing it. And if he loses to Wenger next week look out for even more sloppy emotional behaviour.

I would take Hazard though, he'd be a decent replacement for Osman if he's able to get back to form.

You dodged a bullet there Stonesy.
