FA probing Mourinho comments

- AFP, LONDON

Dec 16, 2017-

England’s Football Association (FA) has asked Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho to explain comments he made in the build-up to last weekend’s 2-1 derby defeat by Manchester City. “He has until 1800 GMT on Monday to respond,” an FA spokesperson said on Twitter. In his final pre-game press conference, Mourinho suggested City’s players were prone to diving, saying it only takes a “little bit of wind” for them to go to ground. He also questioned City manager Pep Guardiola’s right to wear a ribbon in solidarity with jailed Catalan separatists, suggesting it was something he “wouldn’t be allowed to do”.
