Don't let your phone ring when Jose Mourinho's about.
The Portuguese gaffer has had a prickly relationship with the press in the past. But with age he seems to have mellowed a bit, and this was no more evident than earlier this afternoon.
Here's a hint for any wannabe journalists. If you're using your phone to record an interview or a press conference, make sure it's on silent. Otherwise you'll be caught out when it rings and meticulously mocked.
You would think someone at a major company like Talksport would know that. Not so. Jose he was answering a question in the official pre-match press conference ahead of the huge game against Liverpool on Sunday.
At least, he was answering a question before being rudely interrupted.

We haven't seen this happen in a while, with Neil Lennon the most notable example. Sadly, Mourinho didn't engage in a conversation like the former Celtic boss. We just wish that the person ringing was a random family member as opposed to the journalists' boss.
United are in a rich vein of form heading into Sunday's clash at Old Trafford. Hopefully this spur of the moment phone call hasn't interrupted Mourinho's preparations too much.
