Jose Mourinho shows why he is so polarizing. Not for him, the quiet dignified air of triumph but the ugly celebration of jingoism and vanity. Maybe it was aimed at the Italian football establishment who he despises.
Victor Valdes tried to cut short his preening celebrations but he went on undaunted. Kind of sad because Mourinho spent some of his formative years at Barca as an understudy to Sir Bobby Robson when both moved from Porto in 1996.
