‘I didn’t see anything on the pitch. After the match I spoke with Jose and immediately I understood we were wrong. I spoke immediately with the member of my staff and I told him to speak with Mourinho and say sorry. Now everything is finished.

‘We made a mistake, we were in the wrong in the situation. I want to speak to him again but I dealt with the situation immediately.

“Of course I want to speak to him again because I want to make sure he’s able to understand it was a big mistake. I will speak to him again tomorrow.”

When pushed to divulge what the conversation with Ianni was the Italian said : “I think it’s private. I spoke with the member of staff and I have to be very hard. I cannot come here and tell everything, otherwise with my staff I am not credible.
