Mour­inho to dis­cover fate for send­ing-off

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

Manch­ester United man­ager Jose Mour­inho could dis­cover if he has been given a touch­line ban af­ter he was sent to the stands dur­ing last week­end’s goal­less draw home to Burn­ley. The Por­tuguese, no stranger to dis­ci­plinary hear­ings dur­ing his two spells at Chelsea, had un­til Mon­day to re­spond to a sep­a­rate Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion charge of mis­con­duct over com­ments about ref­eree An­thony Tay­lor ahead of United’s re­cent goal­less draw against arch-ri­vals Liver­pool. But Satur­day’s in­ci­dent at Old Traf­ford threat­ens to land Mour­inho with a far more se­vere pun­ish­ment. Mour­inho was sent to the stands at half-time for protest­ing too ve­he­mently to the of­fi­cials, hav­ing seen Mat­teo Darmian de­nied what the United boss felt was a penalty. United fin­ished the match with 10 men af­ter mid­fielder An­der Her­rera was sent off in a re­sult that added to the grow­ing pres­sure on Mour­inho, with the Red Devils with­out a win in four league games and eight points be­hind the lead­ers. — AFP
