Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho feels vindicated after being cleared of FA charge

Jose Mourinho says he decided to appeal a recent FA charge for allegedly using abusive language because he was “100 per cent” not guilty.

The Manchester United manager was charged following United’s 3-2 win over Newcastle after he appeared to say something in Portuguese directly at TV cameras as he headed towards the tunnel at the final whistle.

Mourinho requested a non-personal hearing to fight the charge, which was eventually dropped on Wednesday.

Speaking ahead of his side’s visit to Bournemouth on Saturday, Mourinho admitted he was pleased to have eventually been cleared of any wrongdoing.

“The reason why I asked the club and the lawyers to appeal was because I was 100 per cent that I was not guilty of these charges,” the United boss said.

“But you never know how it ends. Yes I am pleased but I know I have to respect the process and I have to wait for what is going to happen next.

“But I only appeal if I feel I am not guilty. I don’t appeal to lose my time or to make other people lose time.”
