Another misconduct charge for Mourinho

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has risked the wrath of the Football Association after being charged with improper conduct for his actions during the 1-1 draw with West Ham on Sunday.

Mourinho was sent to the stands for the second time this season, as his frustrations boiled over when Paul Pogba was booked for simulation in the first half at Old Trafford, kicking a water bottle on the sidelines.

Replays showed Noble did not make contact with the France midfielder.

The Portuguese coach has now been charged for the third time during his brief tenure at the United helm, having already served a one-match touchline ban for a previous infringement.

He is facing a three-game suspension this time around due to his past indiscretions. 

A statement from the FA read: "Jose Mourinho has been charged following Manchester United’s game against West Ham United on Sunday [27 November 2016].

"It is alleged his behaviour in or around the 27th minute of the game amounts to improper conduct. He has until 6pm on 1 December 2016 to respond to the charge."

Mourinho has until 18:00 GMT on December 1 to respond.
