The Football Association has charged Jose Mourinho for the comments he made on the touchline following Manchester United‘s 3-2 win over Newcastle United on October 6.
The Portuguese tactician entered the Premier League encounter against Newcastle amid reports of a sacking being imminent if the game ended in defeat.
In fact, a loss looked very likely when the Red Devils went 2-0 down on their own turf, but Mourinho’s men pulled off a sensational comeback to win the match 3-2, blowing the roof off Old Trafford.
Jose Mourinho himself celebrated the victory passionately, but that same passion got the better of him as he made his way to the tunnel after the full-time whistle.

The Manchester United boss was seen uttering “Fodas filhos de puta” at the camera in his native Portuguese language. When translated to English, the statement means: “F*** off, you sons of b*****s”.
Now, the 55-year-old has been charged for the same, with the FA alleging that “abusive, insulting or improper language” was used by the manager.
Jose has until 18:00 BST on October 19 to respond to the charge.
