Bengaluru, Nov 28: Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is on the verge of facing yet another touchline ban after he was send off by referee Jonathan Moss during the English Premier League match against Burnley last night, November 27.
Manchester United were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by Slaven Bilic's West Ham United. The Red Devils had to pay the price for being wasteful throughout the match.
During the match, star midfielder Paul Pogba was booked by the referee for diving. Manchester United fans and players were clearly not happy with Jonathan Moss' call and Jose Mourinho was understandably furious.
In utter frustration and anger, the Portuguese boss kicked a bottle vehemently on the touchline. Mourinho's actions did not go unnoticed as Moss quickly came near the touchline and gave the Manger marching orders.
Mourinho's fate will depend on Jonathan Moss' post-match referee's report which will be submitted within 48 hours of the match.
After the match, Jose's assistant Rui Faria attended the press conference where he said: "I think everyone saw his frustration was shown in a situation that should be a free-kick for us and finishes with a yellow card for Paul and out of the next match.
"There is a reason to express some frustration. After that, things that are part of the game and the referee took a decision.
"But it comes everything from that. I think everyone saw. It is part of the game. It was the referee's decision."
This is the third in the past 1 year that Jose Mourinho was given marching orders by a referee during an ongoing match.
A year back when Mourinho was still a Chelsea boss, the same referee Jonathan Moss had send him off during a Chelsea Vs West Ham United.
A month back, Manchester United took on Burnley and were held to a 0-0 draw. Mark Clattenburg had ordered Jose Mourinho to leave the playing arena after the Portuguese made some wrong gestures.
