While Mourinho had water and milk thrown over him after he approached the away dressing room. It was £350,000. He got released from Norwich, I took him in at Oldham, and he was the best player in that year.

The cheering was still reverberating at the Ashton Gate home of the second tier Championship club on Wednesday after their last-gasp 2-1 quarter-final win over the Premier League giants when the semi-final draw offered them an even giddier follow-up. The decision is now being rewarded, not only with the outstanding result against United but also the superb position City find themselves in challenging for promotion to the Premier League.

Mourinho accused City's players of going to ground too easily and said match officials needed to be aware of City's "tactical fouling". The league is very important to us, and Saturday is a massive game.

BIG DAY FOR BRISTOL CITY "For them, it was a big day and big teams against teams of lower divisions, this is always a risk and you advise, advise, advise but in the end, the players are in a different level of intensity and motivation than the opponent and sometimes this can happen".

"I sold Korey from Oldham to Bristol City when I was manager there".

"It was his first piece of silverware at United".

"The players have been phenomenal".

"I'm so happy", the Spaniard told Sky Sports after he had bounced on to the King Power Stadium pitch to congratulate his mixed bag of promising starlets and international heavyweights.

"It was a competitive game - it was great to watch world-class players play".

Although Johnson and Mourinho did not get a chance to share the expensive bottle of wine Johnson bought for the occasion, he still had an opportunity to speak with the United manager. He is a City mad fan. "We were the team with the strength in our legs - even to go to a strong extra-time - and they scored when we didn't have time for a reaction".

The visitors looked to have booked a semi-final place with a first-half Bernardo Silva goal until Leicester were awarded a soft looking penalty seven minutes into stoppage time which Jamie Vardy converted.
