Over the weekend, Manchester United dropped more points at home against a West Ham side who had been struggling for form recently. The game was Jose’s fourth draw in a row, and once again, it was filled with controversy as our manager was sent to the stands.
After Paul Pogba’s alleged dive less than thirty minutes in, Jose Mourinho was left absolutely apoplectic at the decision to book the French midfielder – he then went to take his anger out at a water bottle. For his actions, the self-proclaimed Special One was sent to the stands for a third time this season.
According to the Daily Mail, senior officials are becoming increasingly frustrated at the actions of the Portuguese manager because this is his third FA charge in the space of one month.
The report adds that although Edward Woodward will not take any direct action against Jose Mourinho, other members of the board and hierarchy believe that his antics are becoming a distraction – hence the poor results.
At the end of the day, to me, it feels like there is a witch hunt out to get our manager. However, kicking a water bottle down the touchline is just petulant and unnecessary. Why give the referee a decision to make in the first place?
Jose has until 18:00 GMT on Friday to respond to this latest charge.
