London, Manchester United manager Jose

Mourinho has been charged over comments he made in Portuguese to

a television camera after his side’s win over Newcastle.

It is claimed Mourinho used “abusive, insulting or improper

language” after the 3-2 comeback victory at Old Trafford on 6 October.

The Football Association (FA) used a lip reader and the 55-year-

old’s remarks were interpreted as offensive.

Mourinho had been under pressure amid reports he would be

sacked.

His side had been 2-0 down to winless Newcastle at half-time of

the Premier League game, but they scored three goals in the final 20

minutes to turn the match around.

After the game, Mourinho said he could “cope with the manhunt”

against him.

A 90th-minute winner from Alexis Sanchez ended a run of four

games without a win, United have recorded their worst league start for

29 years and are eighth in the table.

Mourinho has until Friday to respond to the charge, the BBC

reported.
