MOU CHARGED OVER REF­EREE COM­MENTS

The Star (Kenya) - - Sports International Football -

Jose Mour­inho has been charged with mis­con­duct in the wake of his com­ments about ref­eree An­thony Tay­lor be­fore Manch­ester United’s goal­less draw with Liver­pool last week, the Foot­ball Association said on Thurs­day. United man­ager Mour­inho said it would be “dif­fi­cult” for Tay­lor, who is from the Greater Manch­ester area, to have “a very good per­for­mance” af­ter be­ing put in charge of the Pre­mier League game be­tween two fierce ri­vals. “Manch­ester United man­ager Jose Mour­inho has been charged with mis­con­duct, in re­spect of com­ments he made re­lat­ing to the ap­pointed match ref­eree prior to the Liver­pool FC v Manch­ester United FC fix­ture on Mon­day 17 Oc­to­ber 2016,” the FA said in a state­ment. The FA had ear­lier asked Mour­inho to ex­plain com­ments he made about the match ref­eree. FA rules pro­hibit man­agers and play­ers from mak­ing com­ments about of­fi­cials which could be viewed as in­tim­ida­tory or in­flu­en­tial be­fore games.
