Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho facing stadium ban after being sent to stands in Burnley stalemate


Jose Mourinho is facing a stadium ban after another day of disaster for theManchester United boss.

Mourinho was sent to the stands after a half-time tunnel confrontation with referee Mark Clattenburg and spent the second half watching his struggling stars draw 0-0 against Burnley from the directors’ box.

The United boss was furious at Clattenburg’s first-half display and failure to award his side a penalty after a John Flanagan challenge on Italian defender Matteo Darmian, writes Steve Bates in the Sunday People.

And the FA could now throw the book at Mourinho who has already been charged with misconduct for comments he made about referee Anthony Taylor before the recent Liverpool game at Anfield.

That offence came just days after a suspended one-year stadium ban expired from his time at Chelsea.

“Everyone should be pleased with the performance. We dominated the game and we fought until the last second to get the result and that is the most important thing.

“Jose is not here to say we are very happy with the players’ performance. We tried and we created many chances. Their goalkeeper was the best player on the pitch.

“But things didn’t happen. I believe better days will come. We should be worried if we don’t create any chances but in this case we created plenty and I believe best results will come.”

Asked about Ander Herrera’s 69th-minute sending off for a second yellow card, Faria risked censure himself adding: “I just want to say fantastic work from the ref.”
