Jose Mourinho: Man Utd boss escapes punishment for fracas after Chelsea match

Jose Mourinho: Man Utd boss escapes punishment for fracas after Chelsea match

[Chelsea manager Maurizio] Sarri was quick to accept the blame and criticise Ianni's actions.

Mourinho confirmed after the game that he received an apology from Ianni and manager Maurizio Sarri and said he "considers the matter closed".

But the FA announced on Monday that Ianni has been charged with improper conduct, with the coach given until 6pm on Thursday to respond.

At the other end, United attempted to stop the outstanding player of the Premier League season so far with some rough treatment as Nemanja Matic and Ashley Young were shown early yellow cards for chopping down Eden Hazard.

"What happened was with [Maurizio] Sarri's assistant and Sarri was first to come to me and say he would resolve the problem internally with him".

Chelsea winger Victor Moses is considering a January exit from Stamford Bridge.

Martial had been largely anonymous before the break, but, in contrast to Morata, took his chances when they came in the second period.

So, I guess you could say that actually, Mourinho isn't in the wrong for going after Ianni. I hope that everybody does the same as I did, which is not to disturb the career of a young guy which probably is a great guy, a coach with great potential and I'm not happy with any more than that.

He is just the latest in a group of fringe players who are considering departing the club in January, with Andreas Christensen having recently admitted that he is unhappy with the current level of game time.

"He apologised and I accepted it".

"I would really like the boy not to go through more than that, let him work". "I have to speak to him again because I want to be sure he is able to understand that it was a big mistake".

Mourinho sought to dispel any notion that the ugly scenes at Chelsea were his fault, saying he had been the victim of rudeness on the part of Chelsea technical assistant Marco Ianni and fans.

Before that match in West London, Friday's initial start saw a big turnout in our referendum around Old Trafford, with a large amount of the Red Devils' fanbase opting to keep Mourinho at the helm. Mourinho could potentially face a domestic touchline ban.
