Jose Mourinho charged by FA for alleged abusive language…

Jose Mourinho has been charged by the Football Association over comments he made after Manchester United’s Premier League victory against Newcastle on October 6.

The United manager spoke into a camera after his side came from behind to triumph 3-2 at Old Trafford.

An FA statement read: “It is alleged that his language at the end of the fixture, as captured by the broadcast footage, was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper.

“He has until 6pm on October 19 to respond to the charge.”

Mourinho could potentially face a touchline ban if found guilty.

The match was played amid a tense atmosphere with the club having denied a report earlier in the day that Mourinho was going to be sacked that weekend regardless of the result.

United recovered from 2-0 down to complete a dramatic comeback with a 90th-minute goal from Alexis Sanchez.

Footage from the game shows Mourinho saying something – at one point while looking into a camera – as he headed towards the tunnel following the final whistle.
