Manchester United to Contest Mourinho’s Charge
Manchester United are “vigorously contesting” a Football Association charge against manager Jose Mourinho, for comments he allegedly made in Portuguese to a television camera after his side’s comeback win over Newcastle United at Old Trafford on 6 October.
It is claimed the special one used “abusive, insulting or improper language” after the 3-2 comeback win at the Theatre of Dreams.
Mourinho was given an extension until Wednesday to answer the charge.
The Portuguese could face a possible touchline ban if found guilty.
The FA used a lip reader and the 55-year-old’s remarks were interpreted as offensive.
Mourinho had been under pressure amid reports he would be sacked.
