FA charge Jose Mourinho again: Man United boss to face tougher punishment as repeat offender

Posted by

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been charged by the Football Association for the third time in six weeks.

Mourinho’s latest misdemeanor saw him sent to the stands during Sunday’s 1-1 draw with West Ham United.

The Special One was dismissed by referee Jon Moss after kicking a water bottle in anger following the official’s decision to show a yellow card to United midfielder Paul Pogba.

An FA statement read: “Jose Mourinho has been charged following Manchester United’s game against West Ham United on Sunday [27 November 2016].

“It is alleged his behaviour in or around the 27th minute of the game amounts to improper conduct.

“He has until 6pm on 1 December 2016 to respond to the charge.”

Meanwhile, Sky Sports report that Mourinho faces a tougher punishment this time around as he is a repeat offender.

Mourinho was given a one-match touchline ban and fined £8,000 after being sent off by Mark Clattenburg during October’s 0-0 draw with Burnley, per Sky.

The same source claim that Mourinho was also fined £50,000 earlier this month for publicly questioning the appointment of Anthony Taylor as the referee for a Liverpool vs Man United fixture based on the referee being local to the Manchester area.

Mourinho is perhaps unlikely to be overly concerned by how much the FA plan to fine him this time.

According to the Daily Star, he is paid £312,500 by United each week.

Mourinho will, however, be concerned by how far behind their rivals United currently are in the Premier League table.

After Sunday’s draw, the Red Devils find themselves eight points off fourth sport and 11 behind leaders Chelsea.
