Jose Mourinho: Man Utd boss hit with second FA charge in a week

Breaking news

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been given a second Football Association charge in a week following his dismissal during Saturday's 0-0 draw with Burnley.

Mourinho, who on Thursday was charged over comments he made about referee Anthony Taylor, was sent to the Old Trafford stands by Mark Clattenburg.

He is accused of using abusive or insulting words to the officials in or around the tunnel area at half-time.

He has until Friday to respond.

Possible punishments include a warning, fine, touchline ban or stadium ban.

The FA have acted after considering Clattenburg's match report.

Mourinho appeared to be upset when United were not awarded a penalty during Saturday's match, after Jon Flanagan challenged Matteo Darmian inside the Burnley box.

The 53-year-old emerged for the second half but was escorted to a seat in the stands before being moved a second time, this time to the directors' box. He declined to speak to the media after the match.

United are eighth in the Premier League and without a win in their past four games.
