Not a game goes by without Jose Mourinho bemoaning something from the touchline.

Whether it be a penalty being turned down or one of his own players making an error, the Portuguese is certainly one of the most animated managers in the game.

Mourinho’s Manchester United team took on Zorya Luhansk in the Europa League this evenings, picking up three points thanks to Zlatan Ibrahimovic's scrappy goal in the second half

There was little action in the first half of the game, Marcus Rashford’s half-volley crashing the crossbar, but fortunately Mourinho provided the entertainment in the form of a rant at one of Zorya’s players.

When the teams next meet in Ukraine on December 8, Ivan Petryak will think twice about diving right in front of the United boss.

Petryak fell down under an incredibly soft challenge from Timothy Fosu-Mensah, and quickly paid the price.

Mourinho gestured for the 22-year-old to get to his feet before continuing his rant in front of the referee's poor assistant on the touchline. 

Check out a furious Mourinho below.

Things picked up for the United boss after the restart, Ibrahimovic scoring the only goal in a rather dull game. 

It was Ibrahimovic's sixth goal of the season, but all attention will go to the provider, Wayne Rooney. The 31-year-old started the game on the bench, as he did against Leicester City, but created an assist within two minutes of coming on.
