Jose Mourinho sent off for venturing onto pitch in Man Utd win at Southampton

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

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."
