FA to use lip reader to investigate Mourinho comments

FA to use lip reader to investigate Mourinho comments

11 Oct 2018, 12:15

The FA may have to seek the advice of a lip reader and a linguistics expert as they continue to investigate Jose Mourinho's touchline comments.

Mourinho made a series of comments to camera as he headed towards the tunnel after Manchester United's 3-2 win over Newcastle on Saturday. Some reports suggest his words included swearing in Portuguese. Sky Sports News broke the story earlier this week that Mourinho was set to be investigated by the FA.

Should he be found by the FA to have used 'offensive, insulting or abusive language' he could face a touchline ban when he returns to his former club Chelsea for Manchester United's first game back after the international break.

Mourinho's position at United has come under increased scrutiny following rumours of strained relationships within the club.

United are eighth in the Premier League, seven points behind leaders Manchester City.
