Man United boss Jose Mourinho declines birthday gift of cider at Yeovil

Manchester United saw off Yeovil in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Friday evening and, as promised beforehand, Jose Mourinho was offered a customary post-match tipple to celebrate.

However, rather than the usual glass of red wine, Mourinho was handed a bottle of local Somerset cider in the tunnel at Huish Park.

Not that the transaction was entirely smooth, with Mourinho point-blank refusing to sample the cider on offer.

"I don't know if I like it because I've never tried it," said the United boss. "I'll keep it but I won't try it."
