Referee Jonathan Moss flashed a yellow card at Red Devils star Paul Pogba for play acting which did not go down too well with the manager.

In utter frustration and anger Mourinho kicked a water bottle on the touchline with great force. Moss immediately order the United manager to leave the ground.

Now after the referee's post-match report, The FA has decided to punish Mourinho with a hefty fine and match's ban.

The official 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."

This is the second time in the ongoing season that Mourinho got into trouble after displaying his frustration on field.

A month back, during a match against Burnley, Mourinho had to face the wrath of the referee and the FA for improper on-field behaviour.
