0

Jose Mourinho, whose side take on Liverpool at Anfield on Monday night, had claimed that Manchester-based Taylor could struggle to officiate the heated Premier League clash.

Mourinho said on Sunday: “I think Mr Taylor is a very good referee but I think somebody with intention is putting such a pressure on him that I feel that it will be difficult for him to have a very good performance.”

According to Sky Sports News , the FA’s governance department is looking at Mourinho’s comments and will contact him for his observations if they believe there is a case to answer.

Managers and players are not allowed to make any comments which could be viewed as intimidating or influential about the appointed match officials before a game, in the light of rules introduced in 2009.
