Jose Mourinho has been sent off during
Manchester United’s match against West
Ham after kicking a water bottle on the
touchline.
The Red Devils manager reacted angrily to
referee Jon Moss’ decision to caution Paul
Pogba for diving, though replays showed
the decision was correct.
Expecting a free-kick to be awarded in
Pogba’s favour, Mourinho was furious
when Moss pointed the other way and
stormed across his technical area before
launching a kick at a stray bottle.
The incident was spotted by fourth official
Anthony Taylor, who subsequently alerted
Moss before Mourinho was sent to the
stands.
It is not the first time the former Chelsea
boss has been punished for disciplinary
problems this season. Earlier this month,
Mourinho was handed a one-match
touchline ban and fined for two separate
offences.
During United’s match against Burnley on
October 29, he was sent to the stands by
referee Mark Clattenburg after an incident
in the tunnel area at half-time for which he
was later charged with using “abusive
and/or insulting words to a match
official”.
Mourinho was then hit with a further
charge for comments made about Taylor
before the game against Liverpool on
October 17, which the Football Association
found constituted improper conduct and
brought the game into disrepute.
The 53-year-old suggested Taylor, who was
scheduled to referee the game, would be
under “pressure” at Anfield because of the
fact he is based in Manchester.
Mourinho opted not to sit outside after
being sent off during the West Ham game
and instead retreated to a private room
from which he could continue to watch the
match.
