    TEMPO.CO, London - Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been charged by the Football Association for abusive language following his side`s Premier League win over Newcastle United this month, English soccer's governing body said on Tuesday.

    The Portuguese coach was reported to have directed an insult in his native language towards a camera which was live tracking him down the touchline after his side's 3-2 comeback win at Old Trafford.

    "It is alleged that his (Mourinho's) language at the end of the fixture, as captured by the broadcast footage, was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper. He has until 6pm on 19 October 2018 to respond to the charge," the FA said in a statement.

    Mourinho's punishment, if found guilty, could include a touchline ban, which would mean him sitting in the stands for the game against his former club Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
