“Nothing special, it was not a physical reaction, but a reaction to some bad words,” Mourinho said.

“He [Diawara] is a player of the team, you know there is a group of players training separately, but he is not in that group, he is training with the first team. The transfer window is open, something can happen, but perhaps Diawara stays with us, if he stays, he is an option.

“He has experience and quality, he is a good person and a great professional. We have a nice relationship with him, it won’t be a problem if he stays.”
