Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been charged by the FA for allegedly using obscene language following his team’s comeback win over Newcastle.

According to sources and reports, ‘the special one’s job would have been over if Newcastle had maintained their 2-0 lead to the end at Old Trafford.

After the win, Mourinho looked directly into the camera following him and uttered something, which lip-reading experts believe was swearing.
