Fans in hysterics as Solskjaer pats Mourinho on the head ‘like a puppy’

first_imgMANCHESTER UNITED fans were in hysterics after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer patted Jose Mourinho on the head “like a puppy” following Spurs’ defeat at Old Trafford.The Red Devils got one over their old boss thanks to Marcus Rashford’s double, which secured a 2-1 win and ended Mourinho’s winning run.5 Man Utd boss Solskjaer patted Mourinho’s head at full timeCredit: Rex Features5 Mourinho looked less than pleased with the exchangeCredit: Getty – ContributorIt was all very convivial between Mourinho and the man who took his job – until the full-time whistle.The pair hugged and shook hands on the touchline at the end, but Solskjaer could not resist patting the Special One patronisingly on the head.The moment did not go unnoticed by United supporters.One wrote: “Never thought I’d see the day Ole would take Mourinho’s job and then pat his head like a puppy after beating him.”Another posted: “Delighted for Ole that he got a chance to give Mourinho the final patronising pat on the head after shaking hands. Fair play.”A fellow user said: “Ole dropping the dismissive head pat on Mourinho akin to dropping a stone cold stunner on Steve Austin.”Football London claimed Mourinho got his own back on Solskjaer by planting his hand on the Norwegian’s head in the tunnel afterwards.5But there was no footage or photographs to back this up.Mourinho was asked about the incident afterwards but played it down, saying: “No one likes to lose the game. But we are all the same, we just want to win games.”The head pat was the second touchline incident Mourinho was involved in during the Old Trafford clash.He was left clutching an injured knee after United winger Daniel James crashed into him following Harry Winks’ tackle in the first half.Funnily enough it was Mourinho who then accused his former side of “pretending injuries”.The gutted Portuguese, 56, told beIN Sports: “We started bad, they started well.”They scored the first goal, could have scored the second and for the first 30 minutes they were not just better than us, they were much better than us. For the last 15 minutes, the story was different.”I thought the second half we’d be back to normality and normality was to have control of the game but when you concede a goal like we did it’s difficult.55 Mourinho did not look at Ole when he tapped him on the headCredit: Reuterslatest man utd newsLive Blogunited newsMan Utd news LIVE – Latest updates from Old TraffordMAN DOWNUtd and City face TWO-WEEK summer if they reach Euro finals before new Prem seasonDEPAY CHARTMan Utd flop Memphis used computer data and analytics to quit Old TraffordODS ON?Ighalo to leave Man Utd TOMORROW unless dramatic extension can be reachedPEA SHOOTERHernandez: Man Utd ‘still haunted’ by ‘mistake’ of Moyes replacing FergusonDEVIL’S ADVOCATEEx-Man Utd star Chadwick dreaded being picked for Keane’s team in training”They took a few steps back, started to block low and they were clever in the way they were getting fouls and pretending injuries and controlling and then still dangerous on the counterattack.”We were punished by our mistake for the second goal. The reason I want to say clearly they deserved to win the game was because in the first 30 minutes of the game they were much better than us.”It was not just today, if you look to our previous matches it was the same. Against Olympiacos we didn’t start well, against Bournemouth it took time, rather than being proactive we are a little bit more reactive.”Jose Mourinho explains why it’s easier for Man Utd to play against the better teams in the Premier League after Spurs lose 2-1 at Old Traffordlast_img read more

It features a 3.6GHz six-core Core i3 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD. For a limited time, it’s $100 off.View DealThe 2018 Mac mini packs a 3.6GHz six-core Core i3 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD. In our Apple Mac mini 2018 review, we loved its compact size, upgradable RAM, 4K display support, and Thunderbolt 3 port selection. Though we wish it were a tad more upgradable, we gave it 4.5 out of 5 stars and named it Editor’s Choice for its overall rock-solid performance. With its 7.7 x 7.7 x 1.4-inch design, the Mac mini’s size hasn’t changed since its 2010 debut. However, the new Mac mini weighs a mere 2.6 pounds and features a modern, space-gray anodized finish.Apple revamped the Mac mini’s internal design to accommodate the updated processor. Its cooling system consists of larger vents and a bigger fan to enhance airflow. What’s more, the latest Mac mini offers more traditional SO-DIMM slots. This means you can upgrade the unit’s RAM if needed. The Mac Mini offers plenty of connectivity options. It has four Thunderbolt 3 ports (using USB Type-C connections), two USB 3.0 ports, a single HDMI 2.0 port, a headphone jack for audio, and Gigabit Ethernet. You can add up to two 4K displays as well as external storage and other PC peripherals.(Image credit: Future)In terms of performance, the Mac mini impressed us in our labs. It scored 13,666 points in our Geekbench 4 overall performance test. That beats the Lenovo ThinkCentre M710q Tiny (Core i5/8GB RAM), which scored 8,010 points. Our machine was also able to keep 15 browser tabs open while simultaneously streaming music and video without experiencing any lag.File transfer speeds were equally impressive. It copied over a 4.97GB file folder in just 2 seconds, which translates into 2,544 MBps. That’s faster than the HP Z2 Mini G4 (1,017.8 MBps) and also beats other mini PCs, like the Intel Hades Canyon NUC (310.60 MBps) and the Lenovo ThinkCentre M710q Tiny (169 MBps).With its excellent performance and design, the Mac mini makes for a great value at this price.Apple Mac Mini 2018 Reviewlast_img read more
