It had been thought that the Portuguese’s comments would go unpunished, but the FA have charged the 53-year-old with ‘bringing the game into disrepute’.

“Jose Mourinho has been charged with misconduct in respect of comments he made relating to the appointed match referee, prior to the Liverpool v Manchester United fixture on Monday 17 October,” read the FA’s statement. “It is alleged his comments were improper and/or brought the game into disrepute contrary to FA Rule E3(1).”

Mourinho has until October 31 at 6pm to respond to the charge.
