Jose Mourinho was bizarrely sent off for venturing onto the pitch in Man Utd’s 1-0 win at Southampton on Saturday, Sky Sports reports.

With United 1-0 up in the last minute of stoppage time, Mourinho stepped one foot onto the pitch while urging his team back to defend, only for fourth official Mike Jones to take notice.Jones pulled Mourinho back behind the line, before calling over referee Craig Pawson when the ball went out of play.

Pawson then sent Mourinho to the stands for the final moment, but the United boss did not complain, instead going out of his way to shake hands with several members of the Southampton coaching staff.

When asked about the incident after the game, Mourinho said, “I don’t know. I don’t know. Craig (Pawson) told me to leave, and I left.”

Romelu Lukaku continued his fine goalscoring form for Manchester United to give them a hard-fought 1-0 victory at Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday.

Lukaku scored his eighth goal in eight games for United after 20 minutes, converting a rebound after his initial header was saved by Fraser Forster.
