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.
