Play of the day: Mourinho's meltdown

With his team trailing Barcelona by 16 points in La Liga, Manchester United up next in the Champions League and fans baying for him to be sacked, Jose Mourinho had a minor meltdown on the touchline this weekend.

It happened during Madrid's Copa del Rey clash against Celta Vigo, who started yesterday's second leg 2-1 up.

Real were winning 2-0 on the night, when Celta Vigo defender Andres Tunez was shown a yellow card for a foul on Cristiano Ronaldo.

Mourinho clearly wanted to see Tunez walk - although replays suggested it was another dastardly dive by Ronaldo - before exploding into a touchline freak-out.

The Portuguese leapt out of his seat and scurried down the line before grabbing a ball and aiming a kick down the tunnel.

Mourinho should have saved his energy, though, as a Ronaldo hat-trick including one trademark long-range swerver and a Sami Khedira strike eased the Bernabeu team to a 4-0 win and set up a quarter-final against Valencia next week.
