He will not face any punishment

José Mourinho will not face any punishment from the FA after it failed to prove that he swore in Portuguese during Manchester United’s win over Newcastle United.

Mourinho’s side went 2-0 down to Newcastle on 6th October, but turned things around with a miraculous second half comeback.

Goals from Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sánchez secured all three points for United after a first half that seemed to signal the end of Mourinho’s reign at Old Trafford.

The FA charged Mourinho after the game for using foul language during the game, but the manager has escaped any punishment after the governing body’s charge could not be proved.
