Mourinho Faces FA Misconduct Charge Over Referee Comment 

 

 

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association.

 

Mourinho's charge was confirmed by the FA on Thursday on their official website.

 

Mourinho was ruled to have breached FA rules for commenting on referee Anthony Taylor ahead of his side's goalless draw with Liverpool on October 17.

 

The Portuguese said appointing Taylor for the game at Anfield had put 'pressure' on the Manchester-based official and it would be 'difficult for him to have a very good performance'.

 

A statement on the FA's website reads: "Jose Mourinho has been charged with misconduct following comments made ahead of Manchester United's trip to Liverpool FC earlier this month."

 

"It is alleged his comments were improper and or brought the game into disrepute contrary to FA Rule E3 (1).

 

"Mr Mourinho has until 6pm on Monday 31 October 2016 to respond to the charge."
