Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho banned for one game and fined by FA

Mourinho was sent to stands after confronting referee Mark Clattenburg at half-time in Saturday’s 0-0 draw at home to Burnley.

He has also been fined £50,000 for media comments he made about referee Anthony Taylor prior to United’s game at Liverpool.

The one-game touchline ban means the United boss will be missing from the touchline at Swansea City this weekend but will be back when Arsene Wenger brings his Arsenal side to Old Trafford on Nov. 19.

In a statement, the FA said its Independent Regulatory Commission “heard that Mourinho accepted the comments he made about Taylor on Oct. 14 constituted improper conduct but denied they brought the game into disrepute.”

But the commission found the disrepute element proven and warned the manager about his future conduct.

Mourinho “admitted using abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official” against Burnley.

He had reacted furiously late in the first half when Matteo Darmian saw his penalty appeals ignored.
