The Manchester United coach instructed his players to throw their shirts into the crowd, to give their fans a Christmas present.
United players were seen giving away their shirts, after defeating West Bromwich Albion 2-0 on Saturday at the Hawthorns.
Speaking in his postmatch news conference, Mourinho said: “I told them to do that, [it’s] Christmas time. A shirt for a fan, coming direct from the game with sweat, means a lot.
“For them [United players], it is just another shirt that they would give to the kit man, or give to some friend, or they change with some West Bromwich Albion friends. I think to a fan it means a lot.
“It is a pity that not everyone can get one but, for the ones who get it, I think it is a great feeling.”
