Jose Mourinho to face no further action from FA after being sent at Southampton

The Portuguese was asked to leave the touchline by Craig Pawson during second-half injury time of Manchester United’s 1-0 victory at St Mary’s on Saturday, after fourth official Mike Jones pulled him back for encroaching on to the edge of the pitch.

Speaking after the game, Mourinho was none the wiser over the referee’s decision.


“I don’t know [what happened],” he said. “Craig told me to leave, and I left.”

The FA have confirmed that, whatever Mourinho’s offence, it did not warrant further punishment and he will be free to take his place in the Old Trafford dugout when United host struggling Crystal Palace next weekend.
