Mourinho Escapes FA Charge Over Abusive Language Usage

Published

on


Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has escaped punishment after a Football Association charge of using foul language following his side’s win over Newcastle United was found to have not been proven.

The Portuguese coach was reported to have directed an insult in his native language towards a camera.

The equipment was live tracking him down the touchline after his side’s 3-2 comeback win in the English Premier League at Old Trafford earlier this month.

“A charge against Jose Mourinho for allegedly using language which was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper has been found not proven.

“This followed an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today,” the FA said in a statement on Wednesday.

“Written reasons for the decision of the Independent Regulatory Commission will be published in due course. This decision is subject to appeal.”

Since their victory over Newcastle United, Manchester United have picked up four points from two games to move up to eighth in the league standings.
