After drawing with the tenth placed team, a furious Mourinho walked away without even shaking the hands of Hughes, who had reportedly told the United boss during the match to "f**k off" when Mourinho had entered his technical area during a foul.
"It [the handshake] didn't happen", Hughes told BBC Sport.
MARK HUGHES was rebuffed in a second attempt to shake hands with Jose Mourinho after Saturday's touchline spat. It all started in 2009 with Sam Allardyce. And sources say Hughes then encouraged referee Neil Swarbrick to send the United boss to the Bet365 Stands.
"Sometimes, because they're not used to having to take negative results, sometimes they react in the wrong way".
Maxim Choupo-Moting swept the Potters into the lead in the 43rd minute before Marcus Rashford deflected Paul Pogba's header home in the first minute of stoppage time in an eventful end to the first half.
Cavs' Thomas to miss start of season, maybe much longer
If that doesn't get you excited for NBA basketball right there, I don't think you can even call yourself a basketball fan at all. The state of Thomas' hip during a physical was a holdup in completing the trade that sent Kyrie Irving to the Celtics .
"Maybe he reacted in the wrong way". It is really a bad question, because it looks like it's my fault, my problem.
Hughes was confused by Mourinho's behaviour, adding: "I seem to get involved in handshake issues". "I think it probably is a fair result", said Mourinho. One team wanted to win, another team wanted to draw, but the team that wanted to draw fought hard for that. "They defended a lot and it is becoming quite trendy in the Premier League, this way of defending now, but they did well and physically they were very strong and they probably deserved the point".
"We have to know against teams like this you have to have a little bit more, you have to be concentrated and of course we're not happy with a point".
