The FA have charged Manchester United manager José Mourinho with misconduct for his sending off during the Red Devils’ draw with Burnley on Saturday.

Mourinho was made to watch the second half of the game from the stands after being dismissed at half-time by referee Mark Clattenburg.

The United boss was angered by the official’s decision not to award his side a penalty when Matteo Darmian was brought down by Jon Flanagan, and reportedly angrily confronted Clattenburg during the break.

The FA released a statement this afternoon which read: "José Mourinho has been charged with misconduct following Manchester United’s game against Brunley on Saturday October 26.

"It is alleged that in or around the tunnel area at half-time he used abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official. He has until 6pm on November 4 to repsond to the charge."

Mourinho also faces a potential misconduct charge from the FA relating to comments made about referee Anthony Taylor ahead of United’s trip to Anfield to take on Liverpool last month.
