Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho was always likely to dominate this weekend's Sunday World back page - and his rant at referee Mark Clattenburg duly secured him top billing.

Mourinho was convinced referee Clattenburg should have handed United a penalty after bumbling Man City keeper Claudio Bravo clattered into Wayne Rooney in the penalty box as the home side chased an equaliser at Old Trafford.

He was also furious by the decision to overlook a handball in the box, as Nicolas Otamendi appeared to move his elbow towards the ball as it came into the box.

"We were also punished by two decisions of Mark [Clattenburg], because even the best referees can make mistakes and he made two mistakes," argued Mourinho. 

"The first one is Bravo on Rooney – it’s a penalty and a red card. If any player does that outside the box, it’s a direct free-kick and a red card, so inside the box it’s a penalty and a red card.

"The second one is another penalty – Otamendi, with his elbow. He tries to stop the cross that’s going in front of him but the cross goes behind him, he’s looking to the ball and brings the arm and elbow back, and it’s another clear penalty. So we were also punished by that."
