Mourinho will serve a one-match touchline ban by FA after accepting his miscnduct.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been handed a one-match touchline ban and fined £50,000 by the football Association for two separate incidents involving referees.

The first charge  happened when Mourinho made a questioning comments regarding the assignment of referee Anthony Taylor to 0-0 draw against Liverpool in October.

The Portuguese then fell afoul of English football's governing body after he was sent off in United's recent clash with Burnley, during which he had verbally abused referee Mark Clattenburg.
Mourinho had not appealed the incident in which he was sent to the stands for protesting Clattenberg's refusal to award his side a penalty for a trip on Matteo Darmain in the box, and the FA have now published their punishment of Jose.

FA's Count: "An Independent Regulatory Commission heard that Mourinho accepted the comments he made on 14 October 2016 constituted improper conduct but denied they brought the game into disrepute, in contravention of Rule E3(1).
"The Commission found the disrepute element of the charge proven and as well as being fined, Mourinho was waned as to his future conduct.

"Separate to this, Mourinho will serve an immediate one-match touchline ban after he admitted using abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official and accepted the standard penalty."

Mourinho will not be on sit at the coaching cabinet stand in their next Premier League game at Liberty Stadium when they travel to Swansea City, assistant coach will be on ground to do the job while he get others on board alongside with him.

The 53-year-old will be available to his position on 19th November when they welcome Arsenal at Old Trafford.
