If we needed any more proof that Jose Mourinho does not give a single solitary shite about the end of the Premier League season, aside from handing half of the reserve team their debut against Crystal Palace, then we got it in the speedy manner in which he dismissed his obligations to talk to the media after the game.
Presumably not interested in discussing how a drastically weakened team were able to do what his full-strength side struggled to do all season long in beat a bottom-half club at home in the league, Mourinho was not in the mood to talk at all.
Firstly he was asked to do an MUTV interview, where he said very little other than "I am in the final" before bolting off...
Then he was obligated to address the wider media... But incredibly, and possibly for the first time in his managerial career, it seems as though nobody cared what he had to say.
When none of the three or four journalists who attended the press conference had a question for him immediately, he was off.

Perhaps a few of the young players were robbed of some nice praise for putting in a good showing, but Jose didn't care, the journalists clearly didn't care, so why not let everyone off early?
It's the football manager equivalent of a teacher letting you doss on the last day of term, but it was remarkable all the same.
