FA Trying Hard to Ban Mourinho
A lip reader was used by the FA to try to interpret what Mourinho said as he made his way towards the tunnel, with the Portuguese’s remarks subsequently deemed as offensive.
Mourinho looked to have escaped punishment when the Independent Regulatory Commission found the charge unproven at a hearing last week.
However, after receiving the written reasons from the commission, the FA has now appealed the decision which, if overturned, could see Mourinho handed a touchline ban.
The FA instructed Pedro Xavier, an ‘expert in the translation and interpretation of lip reading of colloquial Portuguese language’, to try and decipher what Mourinho said.
Xavier alleges Mourinho said said “Vós sois uns filhos da puta” twice, which translates as ‘sons of a whore’.
Xavier concluded that Mourinho’s comments were the “typical expression used when people are angry” but can be considered “highly inappropriate and unprofessional” and “in a professional context it is absolutely offensive”
