Jose Mourinho really is the Special One

Jose Mourinho really is the Special One, says Manolo Gabbiadini after Manchester United boss’ Wembley gesture.

The Italian became an instant Saints hero with two goals – but the £15m January signing had another goal wrongly disallowed.
Manolo Gabbiadini has insisted he scored a hat-trick on his Wembley debut – but praised Jose Mourinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic after Southampton’s EFL Cup final defeat.

The Italian became an instant Saints hero with two goals – but the £15m January signing had another goal wrongly disallowed.

Gabbiadini said: “I had never played at Wembley. I had seen this fantastic stadium only on the television and to score twice on my debut gives me huge satisfaction.

“And we can say I really scored three, because that disallowed goal was clearly onside and the hurt for this wrong decision is same as losing the final.
“We didn’t deserve the defeat. We were capable of coming back from two goals down and put under pressure a big team like Manchester United throughout the game.”

The former Napoli striker said “ Mourinho came and shook my hand at the end. It was a really nice gesture. You don’t find big characters like him nowadays – he really is the Special One.
