Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho hit with second FA charge in one week

0


Jose Mourinho, who became Manchester United coach in the summer after being sacked by Chelsea last December, is alleged to have used “abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official” in the tunnel during half time of his team’s goalless draw with Burnley at Old Trafford on Saturday.

After the break, the 53-year-old took a seat in the stands rather than the dugout and delivered his orders by using a member of his coaching staff as messenger.

The Portuguese is already awaiting the outcome of a previous misconduct charge, which was issued by the Football Association as a result of comments made by the manager about referee Anthony Taylor .

Mourinho claimed that it would be ‘difficult’ for Manchester-based Taylor to officiate the Premier League clash between United and Liverpool, which finished goalless at Anfield last month.

United currently sit eighth in the Premier League table , eight points adrift of the top three.
