Jose Mourinho was sent to the stands for the second time this season during the first half of Manchester United's clash with West Ham on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils had given their manager plenty to feel frustrated about in the early exchanges after falling behind to a Diafra Sakho header within 90 seconds.

It was the fastest goal scored by an away team at Old Trafford in Premier League history and immediately put Man United on the back foot.

Mourinho's men actually responded pretty well and equalised with just over 20 minutes played.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who was somewhat at fault for Sakho's opener, converted a fabulous ball from Paul Pogba.

And Pogba was involved again to prompt Mourinho's dismissal from the dugout just a few minutes later.

The French international was booked for diving after appearing to jump out the way to avoid getting clattered by Mark Noble.

Mourinho, clearly angered at the decision that will see Pogba suspended for United's next game, erupted into a fierce rage.

As you can see by the video below, the Portuguese even went to the extent of kicking an unfortunate water bottle down the touchline.

That was enough for referee John Moss to send Mourinho off and he will watch the rest of the game from somewhere else in Old Trafford.

Man Utd fans who slammed Louis van Gaal for barely leaving his seat during the Dutchman's tenure have certainly not had that issue with Mourinho.

But is Mourinho's behaviour getting a bit reckless now? Have your say in the comments below.
