Mourinho could face stadium ban after being sent to the stands against Burnley

The Portuguese manager could be in more trouble with the FA.

MANCHESTER UNITED MANAGER Jose Mourinho faces two games away from the touchline as the FA decides whether to hand him his second ban in two seasons, according to the Daily Star.

Already facing a charge of improper conduct due to comments made about referee Anthony Taylor before the 0-0 draw at Anfield two weeks ago, the FA could examine his past record.

And the newspaper reports that they may extend the ban, meaning he would miss Sunday’s trip to Wales to face Swansea, as well as the game against Arsenal on 19 November.

Mourinho was sent to the stands not long before half time in United’s frustrating 0-0 draw with Burnley, after protesting furiously against referee Mark Clattenburg’s refusal to give a penalty when Jon Flanagan felled Matteo Darmian in the area.

The 53-year-old was banned for one game and fined £40,000 last year as Chelsea manager after arguing with referee John Moss at a game at West Ham.

He was almost banned again for comments about referees after a defeat by Southamption last October, but the sentence was suspended for 12 months.

A sentence that meant he narrowly escaped an automatic ban by just eight days after being charged for his recent comments about Anthony Taylor.

United’s 0-0 draw left them in eight place, eight points adrift of joint leaders Man City, Arsenal and Liverpool.
