Chelsea star Eden Hazard and Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho ignore each other in tunnel before FA Cup final
Mourinho moved around the tunnel shaking Chelsea players’ hands just before kick-off.
But, when the Manchester United boss reached Cesc Fabregas, he then seemed to ignore Blues’ matchwinner Hazard.
Mourinho and Hazard may well have spoken earlier at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.
But the footage, captured on the FA Cup’s YouTube channel, was reminiscent of their encounter ahead of Blues’ 1-0 home win over United on November 5.
Mourinho shook hands with a number of his former players including Fabregas and Thibaut Courtois.
But the Portuguese appeared to put his hands in his pocket at the sight of Hazard.
Their relationship appeared strained towards the end of Mourinho’s second stint at Stamford Bridge.
The Special One made barbed remarks about Hazard’s unwillingness to do defensive work as the wheels fell off during the 2015-16 season, when Chelsea finished tenth in the Premier League.

The Belgian has since hinted that his future could lie elsewhere amid interest from Manchester City and Real Madrid.
