Manchester United boss “Jose Mourinho” given touchline ban and fine

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been banned for one match and fined £58,000 for two separate offences.

The Portuguese was sent to the stands by referee Mark Clattenburg for an incident “in or around the tunnel area during half-time” of Saturday’s goalless draw with Burnley.

He will serve a touchline ban for the game against Swansea on Sunday and will have to pay an £8,000 fine.

He was also fined £50,000 for comments he made about referee Anthony Taylor.

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.

Managers are not supposed to speak about referees prior to matches, but Mourinho added that appointing Taylor for the Liverpool match had put “pressure” on the Manchester-based official.
