Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has been charged by the Football Association for using ‘improper language’ in Manchester United’s 3-2 victory over Newcastle United at Old Trafford on the 6th of October.
Mourinho appeared to swear into a television camera with a gestured hand as he left the pitch after the game.
Mourinho was today charged for his outburst and could now face a touchline ban for Manchester United’s trip to Chelsea on Saturday.
A statement from the FA read: “Jose Mourinho has been charged following Manchester United’s game against Newcastle United on 6 October 2018.
“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.”
According to The Times, Mourinho is alleged to have said ‘fodas filhos de puta’ in Portuguese which translates as ‘f*** off, sons of b*****s’.
If found guilty, Mourinho could face a touchline ban for Manchester United’s upcoming Premier League fixture against his former club Chelsea at the weekend.
Mourinho, 55, has until 6pm on Friday to respond to the charge.
