Jose Mourinho has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association after being sent on to the stands during the Premier League draw with West Ham United on Sunday (27 November). The Portuguese boss has until 6pm on Thursday 1 December 2016 to respond to the charge.

The former Chelsea manager received his marching orders by referee Jon Moss before the half-hour mark, after kicking a bottle down the touchline in reaction to the referee decision to book Paul Pogba for diving.

Mourinho thus faces a touchline ban after the FA have confirmed the charged.

"Jose Mourinho has been charged following Manchester United's game against West Ham United on Sunday [27 November 2016]," the FA confirmed through an official statement. "It is alleged his behaviour in or around the 27th minute of the game amounts to improper conduct. He has until 6pm on 1 December 2016 to respond to the charge."

It is the second charge for Mourinho in the space of a month after he was sent off during the goalless draw against Burnley on 29 October. Then the United boss was handed a one-game ban, fined £8,000 and warned over his future conduct by The Football Association following a clash with referee Mark Clattenburg at half-time.

Mourinho was also fined £50,000 for making comments about referee Anthony Taylor in the run-up to the goalless draw between Manchester United and Liverpool, questioning whether officiating a game near his home might put further pressure on his performance.
