Mourinho was sent to the stands by referee Mark Clattenburg for an incident that happened in or around the tunnel area during half-time on Saturday’s goalless draw with Burnley.

Speculation have registered that he was angry on Clattenburg’s decision not to award United a penalty when Matteo Darmian went down in the area following a clash with Jon Flanagan

He has been penalized by FA for his misconduct and will serve a touchline ban for the game against Swansea on Sunday and will have to pay an £8,000 fine.

Mourinho was also fined £50,000 for his comments that has he made about referee Anthony Taylor ahead of the game against Liverpool last month.

The United boss said it would be “difficult” for Taylor to officiate their game with Liverpool prior to the match at Anfield on 17 October.

An FA statement confirmed that Mourinho has accepted the comments “constituted improper conduct, but denied they brought the game into disrepute”.

However, an independent regulatory commission “found the disrepute element of the charge proven and as well as being fined, Mourinho was warned as to his future conduct”.
