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


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.
