The Portuguese coach was suspended from the sidelines for one game and given a £16,000 fine after booting a water bottle during the Premier League match against the same opponents on Sunday but he didn’t watch tonught’s EFL Cup tie from the Old Trafford stands.
Well into the first-half, there was no sign of Mourinho in the United’s director’s box and when asked afterwards where he’d watched the 4-1 victory, the ex-Chelsea and Real Madrid manager gave a cheeky smile before answering cryptically:
Mourinho on where he watched the game, "It's a secret."

Mourinho says it's a secret where in Old Trafford he watched the game.
He watched it on the iPad whilst on the bog didn't he? Utter bliss.

Journalist to Mourinho:
"Where did you watch the game?"

Perhaps he watched it from his home and just popped back to the ground for his post-match interview, or maybe he and Sir Alex watched it together in his office.
Maybe he just watched it in the changing rooms on his iPad – who knows?!
Where do you think he could have watched it that he’d need to keep secret?
