Mourinho avoids punishment over charge of bad language
LONDON (AP) — Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will not face any disciplinary action after a charge of using bad language into a TV camera was found not proven.
The English Football Association says Mourinho was cleared following a hearing by the Independent Regulatory Commission on Wednesday.
The FA had issued the charge against Mourinho, saying his language after United’s 3-2 victory over Newcastle on Oct. 6 “was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper.”
United was trailing Newcastle 2-0 before scoring three goals from the 70th minute for a win that eased mounting pressure on Mourinho.
The FA said the decision is subject to appeal.
