English police are investigating an alleged assault by Inter Milan football club manager Jose Mourinho on a supporter after their Champions League defeat at Old Trafford.

The former Chelsea boss allegedly punched a supporter as he left the ground after the 2-0 last 16 second leg loss to Champions League holders Manchester United.

A police spokesperson says they're investigating an allegation of common assault after a man reported he'd been punched in the face outside Old Trafford in an incident involving Mourinho.
