man­ager Jose Mour­inho was yes­ter­day charged with mis­con­duct over com­ments he made about the ref­eree in charge of this month’s Liver­pool game, the Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion has an­nounced.

United’s out­spo­ken Por­tuguese boss faces a dis­ci­plinary hear­ing af­ter ques­tion­ing ref­eree An­thony Tay­lor’s suitabil­ity to take charge of the Oct 17 game at An­field.

The Al­trin­cham-based of­fi­cial’s ap­point­ment for the Premier League derby had led for­mer English top flight ref­eree Keith Hackett to claim the ap­point­ment would place un­due pres­sure on Tay­lor.

And when those com­ments were put to Mour­inho ahead of the match, the United boss said: “I think Mr Tay­lor is a very good ref­eree but I think some­body with in­ten­tion is put­ting such a pres­sure on him that I feel that it will be dif­fi­cult for him to have a very good per­for­mance.” – AFP Manch­ester United’s Juan Mata (cen­tre) scores past Manch­ester City goal­keeper Willy Ca­ballero dur­ing their EFL Cup Fourth Round match at Old Traf­ford in Manch­ester yes­ter­day.
