FA launches appeal after Jose Mourinho cleared of misconduct charge

FA launches appeal after Jose Mourinho cleared of misconduct charge

Mourinho was charged after he swore in his native Portuguese into a TV camera after United's dramatic 3-2 win over Newcastle on October 6.

Having expressed surprise at the verdict, the FA have now, as expected, made a decision to appeal after "carefully considering" the commission's written findings released on Wednesday, which again raises the possibility of Mourinho receiving a touchline ban. It may take place towards the end of next week.

The charge was vigorously contested.

'Even if the objective person was able to decipher the language JM used, which is highly debatable, we accept Mr Valente's evidence [Mourinho's expert] that a typical person fluent in Portuguese colloquialisms would not feel insulted or offended from what they saw, rather would understand JM to be very happy about something that just happened to him against all odds'.

Xavier stated Mourinho used the phrase "vos sois uns filhos da puta" twice, which literally translate as "sons of a w****".

In reply to the charge, Mourinho produced his own expert report from Simao Valente, an Assistant Professor at the University of Lisbon and "an expert in the Portuguese language, including colloquialisms".

An independent regulatory commission found the case "not proven" but in a written decision published on Wednesday, the FA chose to appeal, with Mourinho facing the prospect of a touchline ban if he is found guilty.

Sege, author of the policy statement and past member of the AAP Committee on Child Abuse and Neglect, said in a press release. He added, "The loving relationship between a child and their parents is the most important relationship that there is".

Valente interpreted the repeated phrase as "vao levar no cu, filhos da puta", which he translated to mean "go take it in the a***, sons of the w****" in the literal sense, and "f*** off you sons of b******" or "f*** off you a*******" as an idiomatic translation.

Mourinho's linguistics expert argued the words used by the United boss were not directed at anyone in particular and were a "personal, inwardly-directed expression of relief, happiness and determination" at the result.

It was a view endorsed by the commission, who ruled: "We find that JM (Jose Mourinho) was celebrating victory without aiming the words at anyone in particular".

"His words were inaudible". His words were inaudible.

Mourinho's charge for alleged abusive language following last month's game between Manchester United and Newcastle was found not proven.

"Consequently, it was superfluous to go on to consider the remaining issue of legitimate expectation".

Mourinho could well face questions about the appeal after United's match away to Italian giants Juventus in the Champions League later Wednesday.
