Mour po­ten­tial sta­dium ban

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

JOSE MOUR­INHO could face a po­ten­tial sta­dium ban fol­low­ing his mis­con­duct dur­ing Manchester United’s 0-0 draw with Burn­ley on Satur­day.

The United man­ager was sent to the stands for the sec­ond half of the game af­ter con­fronting ref­eree Mark Clat­ten­burg dur­ing the half­time break.

Mour­inho al­legedly ques­tioned Clat­ten­burg over his de­ci­sion not to award United a penalty for Mat­teo Darmian’s al­ter­ca­tion with Jon Flana­gan in the Burn­ley box.

Fol­low­ing their con­ver­sa­tion, Mour­inho was not al­lowed back into the dugout and even­tu­ally moved to the direc­tors’ box af­ter be­ing told he couldn’t sit in the front row.

Mour­inho will have to wait for Clat­ten­burg to file his re­port from Satur­day’s match be­fore any ret­ro­spec­tive ac­tion is taken, but the United man­ager could face the prospect of a sta­dium ban.

The flash­point marks the lat­est con­tro­versy in the man­ager’s ca­reer.

Mour­inho cur­rently faces one charge of mis­con­duct from the Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion with re­gards to com­ments he made about ref­eree An­thony Tay­lor prior to United’s game against Liver­pool on Oct 17.

Faria led United’s post-match press con­fer­ence, dur­ing which he said: “I don’t know why he was sent off and I don’t think it was im­por­tant. I think what is im­por­tant is what the ref­eree will write in his re­port. I can’t give you more de­tails.

Asked about their com­mu­ni­ca­tion in the sec­ond half of the game, he added: “To be fair we nor­mally de­fine sit­u­a­tions ac­cord­ing to the de­tails of the match. Some­times a de­tail is im­por­tant.”

The fiery Por­tuguese has a long his­tory of touch­line mis­con­duct, hav­ing been pun­ished 13 times for his an­tics through­out his ca­reer as a man­ager. – The In­de­pen­dent
