Mourinho apologised to a Crystal Palace fan behind his dug-out when he booted a water bottle which flew into the crowd.
He admitted: “It was basic frustration but I had a lot of good fun with the people behind. Maybe they like me here, because I always praise the atmosphere at Selhurst Park.”
Yet Mourinho’s explanation might still not be enough to save him from an FA charge after he served a one-match touchline ban for kicking a water bottle at West Ham.
