Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has been given a one-match touchline ban after being sent to stands in Sunday’s match against West Ham, the Football Association has announced.
The 53-year-old who admitted the Football Association’s charge of improper conduct would be absent for Wednesday night’s EFL Cup quarter-final against the Hammers at Old Trafford.
A statement from the FA read: “Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today [Wednesday 30 November 2016], Jose Mourinho will serve a one-match touchline ban with immediate effect.
“The Manchester United manager admitted an FA charge that his behaviour in or around the 27th minute of the game against West Ham United on Sunday [27 November 2016] amounted to improper conduct. He was also fined £16,000.”
In Sunday’s game, Mourinho reacted after Paul Pogba was booked for diving following an apparent incident with West Ham captain, Mark Noble but replays showed he did not make contact with the 23-year-old France midfielder.
It was the second charge for the Portuguese in two months after he was sent off against Burnley on 29 October.
