Police drop Mourinho assault case

Jose Mourinho

Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho won't face any further action from police after a fan said he was struck by Mourinho after a match.

The incident happened after a Champions League match between Mourinho's current team Inter Milan and Manchester United.

After the match a fan claimed that Mourinho hit him in the face, and complained to police about it.

But now police say the person has decided they don't want the case to continue, so the case has been dropped.

Inter said that Mourinho had not struck the fan, but police still checked video evidence from outside the ground.
