Cape Town - Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has incurred a second Football Association misconduct charge in the space of six days in relation to his dismissal against Burnley.

Mourinho was charged by English football's governing body last Thursday for comments he made about referee Anthony Taylor prior to the Premier League clash with Liverpool on October 17.

The Portuguese coach has now been accused of using foul language towards a match official at half-time during the 0-0 draw at Old Trafford on Saturday.

He was left fuming after United were denied a penalty when Matteo Darmian went down under a challenge from Jon Flanagan inside the area, and was subsequently sent to the stands by referee Mark Clattenburg.

Mourinho was escorted to the stands when he emerged for the second half, only to be moved again - to the director's box this time.

"Jose Mourinho has been charged with misconduct following Manchester United’s game against Burnley on Saturday [29 October 2016]," read a statement from the FA.

"It is alleged that in or around the tunnel area at half-time he used abusive and/or insulting words towards a Match Official. He has until 6pm on 4 November 2016 to respond to the charge."
