Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been charged by the FA for allegedly using abusive langue towards a broadcasting camera.
The Portuguese manager made the comments following his side’s comeback to defeat Newcastle United 3-2 at Old Trafford.
Mourinho has been given the chance to appeal the charge and could face a ban should he fail to contest the charge.
Mourinho charged for abusive language
[2/2] It is alleged that his language at the end of the fixture, as captured by the broadcast footage, was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper. He has until 6pm on 19 October 2018 to respond to the charge.

Mourinho appeared to say to the camera: “f*** off sons of b*****s”.
The FA confirmed they were reviewing the incident and have now charged the United coach.
Mourinho has until 6pm on Friday to oppose the charge.
A potential ban would see him absent from the touchline for Red Devils’ crucial clash with Chelsea.

Pep has screamed in the faces of referees countless times and has gotten away with it. Mourinho does anything that indicates that he is a human and gets charged (kicks a bottle and laughs about it, swears at absolutely nobody). There are no rules to have a camera in your face!

Mourinho being charged by the FA for saying something, in Portuguese, where they employed linguistic and lip-reading experts, instead of asking the work experience kid or Google-translate, says everything you need to know about football nowadays. #MUFC

That’s an absolute joke. Regardless of your thoughts on Mourinho, he has been, and is being, treated differently by the @FA. Has no other manager ever cursed on the touch line? Let alone in a different language. #MUFC https://t.co/WklznYQevC
