Mourinho accused of punching fan

Police in Manchester are investigating allegations that Jose Mourinho punched a fan following last night's Champions League match at Old Trafford. Media reports claim that the Inter Milan boss assaulted the supporter near the Italian side's team bus.

Inter denied the allegations in a statement released earlier today: "At the end of the game, the Portuguese tactician gave interviews to the European media, signed autographs, watched the penalties of the Roma v Arsenal game before saluting (Sir Alex) Ferguson in his office."

"After giving the last interview to Inter Channel, he entered the team bus that was parked outside the dressing rooms and hence it was a very calm post-game experience." But Greater Manchester Police confirmed earlier today that they had received a complaint and have requested CCTV footage of the area in question from Manchester United.
