JOSE MOURINHO HAS been charged with improper conduct by the English Football Association (FA) after being sent to the stands during Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with West Ham United on Sunday, it was announced today.

It is the third time this season the 53-year-old Portuguese has been charged by the FA — he was suspended for a game and fined after an altercation with referee Mark Clattenburg and previously received a hefty fine for critical remarks about the appointment of another referee.

Now he faces an almost definite touchline ban after Jon Moss sent him to the stands during the Premier League match at Old Trafford.

“Jose Mourinho has been charged following Manchester United’s game against West Ham United on Sunday,” tweeted the FA.

It is not the first time Mourinho has clashed with Moss.

Last season, while in charge of Chelsea, Mourinho had an altercation with the same official in a game at West Ham which resulted in a one-match stadium ban.
