Manchester United fans were certainly pleased with Jose Mourinho’s touchline antics during the clash against Watford on Saturday evening.
The Portuguese manager is normally a composed figure in the dugout, often choosing to sit relatively still with a poker face during matches.
However, after United grabbed their second goal of the game Mourinho was caught on camera jumping out of his seat to celebrate with his staff.
Supporters were clearly happy to see the former Chelsea man show some passion for once and it all came about thanks to Chris Smalling‘s goal.
The Englishman scored a beauty from a set-piece effort and it eventually proved to be the match-winning goal.

Mourinho celebrating like that with McKenna after the goal must be because of his work on the set pieces. A brilliant routine mastered beautifully by the team.

Kieran McKenna’s set-piece idea? Mourinho and Carrick rush to him and Pogba fist pumps to the bench. Class.

Suggestions Kieran McKenna came up with the set-piece routine could be true since Jose has never reacted the way in the past.
However, there’s no official word that the coach was responsible for such a thing and so can only be put down to mere speculation.
There has been plenty of talk though that McKenna and Michael Carrick have proven popular amongst the Red Devils’ players.
The two relatively young coaches have only just joined Mourinho’s backroom staff this season but it seems to have proved to be an inspired decision already.
