Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho Set For FA Investigation Following Touchline Comments After Newcastle Win
The Football Association will investigate comments made by Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho as he walked along the touchline after Saturday’s 3-2 win over Newcastle
Footage showed Jose Mourinho saying something – at one point while looking into a camera – as he headed towards the tunnel following the conclusion of the Premier League contest at Old Trafford.
The FA can issue a touchline ban if the language is found to be ‘offensive, insulting or abusive’.
United secured victory thanks to a dramatic late fightback after going 2-0 down early on, with Juan Mata scoring in the 70th minute, Anthony Martial in the 76th and Alexis Sanchez in the 90th as their four-game winless streak in all competitions came to an end.
Mourinho made a gesture with his right hand while speaking, pointing with his little finger.
Online speculation suggests Mourinho shouted: “f*** off sons of b*****s” in his native tongue at full-time of the comeback victory.
In Mourinho’s post-match press conference he claimed there was a “man-hunt” against him like which he had never seen in football
