Excitement is very rarely a word associated with Manchester United manager Jose Mourino. In fact, in the last few weeks, the Portuguese boss has taken on his usual role as a serial moaner after the Red Devils' hectic fixture schedule.

Even on the touchline during United's 3-1 away at Middlesbrough, Mourinho's face looked at its sourest as he adopted perhaps his finest every 'park the bus' strategy in the final few minutes of the game.

However, after the match, the former Chelsea manager was in a bit more of an excitable mood, in fact, he was so excited that he mixed up his alphabet in the post-match interview.

Of course, you do have to feel for Mourinho slightly, after all, speaking in a foreign tongue is not exactly easy so you can understand the odd little error.

Just a little tip for the United boss, maybe speak a tad slower or have less plans to speak about.

United further strengthened their claim for a top four position at the Riverside with a hard-fought 3-1 victory over Boro.

Marouane Fellaini, Jesse Lingard and Antonio Valencia secured the victory, however, the hosts did break their scoring duck with Rudy Gestede striking late in the second half to make for a nervous ending for the visitors.


In the end, Mourinho's men rode the storm and actually scored right at the death with Valencia capitalising on a horrible error from Victor Valdes.

United now move out of sixth position and above bitter rivals Arsenal in their quest for Champions League football.
