The 53-year-old was banished to the stands during the stalemate at the Theatre of Dreams after complaining to referee Mark Clattenburg at half-time over his refusal to award a penalty during the first half.

Mourinho has a long history of fines and suspensions and Saturday’s sending off was the 13th time in the Special One’s career that he’s faced punishment during a match.

The United boss has already been charged with misconduct for comments made about referee Anthony Taylor before the side’s clash with Liverpool earlier this month and he’s likely to face further charges once Clattenburg files his report from Saturday’s game.

Clattenburg is expected to detail the ‘verbal altercation’ that occurred between him and Mourinho and the 53-year-old is likely to be hit with a stadium or touchline ban.
