FA to Charge Jose Mourinho for touchline incident against Chelsea

Jose Mourinho may well be in a spot of bother should the Football Association decide to charge him over a touchline incident in Manchester United's game against Chelsea on Saturday.

In United's draw with Chelsea last weekend, the Manchester United boss was aggravated by Chelsea coach Marco Ianni. This resulted in Mourinho retaliating aggressively, with stewards stepping in to stop him from getting to Ianni in the tunnel.

According to The Telegraph, game referee Mike Dean has decided to include the touchline incident between Mourinho and Ianni in his match report which will be evaluated by the Football Association today.

Ianni may also face some kind of punishment from the FA including internal disciplinary action from the London outfit for his involvement in the incident.

Mourinho is already facing an FA charge for swearing in Portuguese at TV cameras following his side's 3-2 win over Newcastle on October 6.

In addition to the charges he's already facing, another punishment from the FA will certainly not help the Portuguese boss ‘ current situation at Old Trafford as United chiefs will not be pleased about Mourinho being in the headlines for yet another negative incident.
