When does Jose Mourinho not find something to complain about?
Perhaps in Manchester United's comprehensive 4-1 victory against Premier League champions Leicester City back in September, or even Thursday night's comfortable 4-0 win over Feyenoord in the Europa League?
No. Not even Thursday's display could stop the Red Devils boss having a slight dig. But luckily for his bank balance, it was not a comment of such that would see him incur a fine from the FA.

It's seemingly very hard to please the Portuguese; regardless of the circumstances. However, what did bring joy to the Portuguese was Jesse Lingard's added time strike that rounded off a good night's work for United.
Wayne Rooney gave the Old Trafford faithful a glimpse of the United captain of old, opening the scoring after 35 minutes, while a Juan Mata effort and a Brad Jones own goal made it a comfortable evening, before Lingard's late strike.

Mourinho appeared animated when the last goal of the night hit the back of the net in the 92nd minute, after a wonderful piece of play between Lingard and Antonio Valencia saw the England youngster curl a fine, low effort past Jones.
Mourinho wants more praise
But the Portuguese boss confessed he felt the goal would have gained much more recognition, had he not been in the dugout.
As per the Manchester Evening News, Mourinho said: "I did it because the goal was amazing.
"If it is another team scoring that goal, if it is another manager on the touchline with that goal the goal would cross the planet and people would be talking about magic.
"But a Mourinho team and a United team it was just one more goal!"
Putting the petty nature of Mourinho's complaints aside, it was an enjoyable evening for United fans and kept the club's Europa League fate in their hands.
Red Devils' revenge
Mourinho's side had already come undone against the Dutch outfit in their opening game in Group A, before a disappointing 2-1 away defeat to Fenerbahce earlier this month, but the Red Devils rectified their mistakes with an accomplished performance.
Lingard's goal may not have got the recognition Mourinho felt it deserved, but he would happily see West Ham's defence arrive at Old Trafford unsuspecting of the 23-year-old on Sunday, if he can help United to victory in the league.
While the Red Devils boss was aggrieved with Arsenal's late equaliser last weekend, he will be desperate for his side to follow up Thursday's convincing win with another fine performance, and three points, against Slaven Bilic's struggling Hammers.
