Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is glad he wasn’t given any further punishment by the FA for the saga that occurred last Saturday during his side’s premier league game against Southampton at the St Mary’s stadium.
Jose was asked to move to the stands by ref Craig Pawson after he was informed by the fourth official that the Portuguese tactician had encroached onto the pitch.
The referee’s decision was widely criticised after the game, and the general conclusion was that the manager shouldn’t be punished further.
And after the FA have confirmed that no further action will follow, the former Chelsea boss was happy his innocence was proven and that he is expecting no issue to arise when his side clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Speaking about the FA’s decisions, Mourinho said he believes he wasn’t punished because there were no reasons for being sent off to the stands during the game in the first place.
“I’m happy that was recognised, and I can be doing my [job] normally against Crystal Palace.” the tactician said.
His side will be facing CSKA Moscow next for their second Champions League group stage game at Russia on Wednesday, and the former Real Madrid manager believes the Russian side will provide a tough test.
