Jose Mourinho will today be issued with his second misconduct charge in less than a week after his rant at officials during Manchester United's draw against Burnley last Saturday.

The United manager was furious at referee Mark Clattenburg for failing to award a penalty late in the first half for a challenge by Jon Flanagan on Matteo Darmian and is thought to have launched an outburst at the officials during the half-time interval that resulted in him being sent to the stands for the second period.

Clattenburg submitted his report to the FA yesterday and Mourinho is facing the prospect of a one-match touchline ban.

The Burnley flashpoint came just two days after Mourinho was charged for remarks made about referee Anthony Taylor in the lead-up to United's game against Liverpool.

The Portuguese was given until 6pm yesterday to respond to that misconduct charge but neither United nor the FA could confirm last night if he had accepted or denied the charge. Either way, the case will be heard by an independent regulatory commission.
