Mou sent to stands for kick­ing bot­tle

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport Starts Here -

MANCH­ESTER UNITED man­ager Jose Mour­inho was sent to the stands for an­grily kick­ing a wa­ter bot­tle dur­ing his side’s Premier League home game with West Ham United yes­ter­day.

West Ham’s Dim­itri Payet curled in a free-kick in the sec­ond minute of the game that was headed in by Di­afra Sakho. Zla­tan Ibrahi­movic equalised in the 21st minute when he got on the end of Paul Pogba’s cross.

With the score 1-1, Mour­inho took his dis­plea­sure out on a plas­tic bot­tle stand­ing be­side his tech­ni­cal area af­ter Paul Pogba was booked for div­ing by ref­eree Jonathan Moss.

It is the sec­ond time Mour­inho has been sent to the stands dur­ing a game this sea­son, fol­low­ing his dis­missal at half­time of United’s re­cent 0-0 draw at home to Burn­ley.

The Por­tuguese, (53), re­ceived a one­match touch­line ban as pun­ish­ment. He re­ceived a fine ear­lier this month af­ter dis­cussing An­thony Tay­lor’s suit­abil­ity to ref­eree his side’s league game at Liver­pool.

Mour­inho had a run-in with Moss dur­ing the fi­nal weeks of his ten­ure as Chelsea man­ager last sea­son.

Mour­inho con­fronted Moss at half­time af­ter be­ing sent to the stands dur­ing a 2-1 loss at West Ham and was hit with a one-game sta­dium ban by the Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion. —BBC Sport
