Jose Mourinho could face stadium ban

Jose Mourinho was sent to the stands for the second half of the game after confronting referee Mark Clattenburg during the half-time break

It seem Mourinho could face a stadium ban following his misconduct during Manchester United’s 0-0 draw with Burnley on Saturday.

He directly questioned Clattenburg over his choice not to award United a penalty for Matteo Darmian’s altercation with Jon Flanagan in the Burnley box.

After the confrontation, Mourinho was not allowed back into the dugout and eventually moved to the directors’ box after being told he couldn’t sit in the front row.

Man United Manager will have to wait for Clattenburg to file his report from Saturday’s match before any retrospective action is taken. From the look of things, the flashpoint might mark the latest controversy in the manager’s career.

Mourinho currently faces one charge of misconduct from the Football Association with regards to comments he made about referee Anthony Taylor prior to United’s game against Liverpool on October 17.

Faria led United’s post-match press conference, during which he said: “I don't know why he was sent off and I don't think it was important. I think what is important is what the referee will write in his report. I can't give you more details.

Asked about their communication in the second half of the game, he added: “To be fair we normally define situations according to the details of the match. Sometimes a detail is important.”

The fiery Portuguese has a long history of touchline misconduct, having been punished 13 times for his antics throughout his career as a manager.
