​Mourinho cuts off news conference over tunnel bust-up questions 

Jose Mourinho cut short his news conference as the Manchester United manager grew frustrated with questions on reports of a bust-up following the derby against Manchester City.
Mourinho was speaking on the eve of his team’s home clash against Bournemouth, but the pre-match build-up centred on an alleged fracas between United and City players after the visitors left Old Trafford 2-1 winners on Sunday.
With the Football Association (FA) contacting United and City for their versions of events, Mourinho was asked if he expected anyone from the Red Devils to be punished and the Portuguese tactician quipped: “Why? I think you work for another club and not for the press.”
The attention then turned to United forward Romelu Lukaku amid claims he could face punishment for throwing a water bottle during the scuffle at Old Trafford.
“Accuse? Prove? Show evidence and punish him,” Mourinho said. Asked if he thought his United players behaved, he added: “I know. I am not confident — I know.”
That pushed Mourinho over the edge as the 54-year-old left the news conference with a parting shot at reporters.
“You don’t like Bournemouth, eh? You don’t respect them,” Mourinho said as he walked out of the room.
