That caught the attention of the United bench but there was no response until seconds later when Ianni trotted in front of Mourinho again and celebrated with both fists clenched, prompting the latter to try to pursue him down the tunnel.
"Sarri said he would solve the problem with his assistant internally and he then came to me and apologised and I said if he really meant it then okay, I accept".
"It was a good game from Huddersfield and not so good game from us", Klopp told BT Sport. What happened with Sarri's assistant, Sarri was the first one to come to me and say he will resolve it.
'I spoke with Jose after and realised we were wrong, ' said Sarri.
"If I speak to a member of staff and am very hard [with him] I can not come here and tell everything because then I am not credible with the staff".
Following the game he said: "My confidence has grown but our target was to win the game so it is disappointing".
"We are talking about a coach that has won everything, everywhere, so I think you have to respect him". They carried more menace in the second half, but their inability to deal with the first ball, second ball or even third ball was grotesque when it mattered most.
"To win this league you've got to have four or five players chipping in with lots of goals". They looked like they would snatch an undeserved win, but those of us who believed that must have forgotten that Chelsea have Maurizio Sarri now, and they are to be taken seriously at all times.
Manchester United's clash with Chelsea ended with dramatic scenes as Jose Mourinho had to be pulled away from a member of Chelsea's staff.
The anguish and rage on Mourinho's face, as well as the bitter disappointment of United's players, showed how much the denial of the victory hurt them.
Sarri has not yet decided whether he will punish Marco Ianni.
Chelsea have had an uneasy relationship with Mourinho since his second sacking in 2015: he is the club's most successful manager but the rawness of their parting has made celebrating his achievements tricky in the last three years.
"He is a great manager, we have that freedom on the pitch, and when we don't have the ball, we know what to do so it is quite simple". I spoke with my staff, and then [Ianni] agreed to speak to Mourinho and say sorry.
"So I would think which stadium I am in, which public is in the stands but apart from that it is another match for me".
"I am disappointed with the last 30 minutes", he told the BBC.
