Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has escaped a possible touchline ban over the charges that he used foul language in the tunnel following his side’s win over Newcastle United back on October 6. The Football Association has issued their ruling today, and an independent regulatory commission found that the allegations Mourinho used obscenities or offensive language, in his native tongue of Portugese, were not proven.

He will not be sanctioned for the incident, but the FA is surprised by this outcome and they still have not ruled out an appeal of the ruling handed out on Wednesday.


A statement from the FA read: “A charge against José Mourinho for allegedly using language which was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper has been found not proven following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today.

“It related to an incident at the end of the Manchester United versus Newcastle United game on 6 October 2018. Written reasons for the decision of the Independent Regulatory Commission will be published in due course. This decision is subject to appeal.”

Mourinho and United will resume their season with a Premier League fixture at Bournemouth on Saturday.
