The Football Association will investigate comments made by Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho as he walked along the touchline after Saturday’s 3-2 win over Newcastle
Footage showed Jose Mourinho saying something – at one point while looking into a camera – as he headed towards the tunnel following the conclusion of the Premier League contest at Old Trafford.
The FA can issue a touchline ban if the language is found to be ‘offensive, insulting or abusive’.
United secured victory thanks to a dramatic late fightback after going 2-0 down early on, with Juan Mata scoring in the 70th minute, Anthony Martial in the 76th and Alexis Sanchez in the 90th as their four-game winless streak in all competitions came to an end.
Mourinho made a gesture with his right hand while speaking, pointing with his little finger.
Online speculation suggests Mourinho shouted: “f*** off sons of b*****s” in his native tongue at full-time of the comeback victory.
In Mourinho’s post-match press conference he claimed there was a “man-hunt” against him like which he had never seen in football
