The official FA statement read: "Jose Mourinho has been fined £50,000 in relation to media comments he made prior to Manchester United's game at Liverpool on 17 October 2016.

"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 warned 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.

"The incident happened in or around the tunnel area during half-time of United's game against Burnley on 30 October 2016."

Thus, Mourinho will not be present on the touchline on Sunday, November 6 when Manchester United take Swansea City.

Jose had criticised referee Mark Clattenburg publicly for his poor refereeing in the Manchester United match against Burnley. The Red Devils were held for a 0-0 draw by the minnows.
