FA appeal against decision to clear Mourinho

FA appeal against decision to clear Mourinho

The Commission ruled against the FA, deciding that the context of the comment was important, and that the FA expert had failed to prove that the words Mourinho used were in themselves were abusive, insulting or improper.

United's manager will be on the touchline for Sunday's derby at Manchester City regardless of the FA's move because the appeal will not be heard this week.

The United boss was cleared of that charge by an independent regulatory commission at a hearing on 31 October, but the FA has now confirmed it has appealed that decision.

The Chilean worldwide was unhappy with manager, Jose Mourinho, after he was dropped earlier this season and reports claimed few weeks ago that the 29-year-old is considering leaving Old Trafford.

The Written Reasons for the Commission's decision have now been published - which the FA have chose to appeal - and they reveal that Mourinho did admit to swearing.

Now, however, the FA has chose to prolong the case with an appeal.

"The written reasons for that decision were published on Wednesday and the FA has chose to challenge the ruling, meaning Mourinho could still face punishment". His words were inaudible.

The statement, he writes, is "probably an extension of the nationalist narrative that modern India tries to propagate". He achieved the feat in his 205th innings and surpassed Tendulkar, who did it in 259 innings in 2001.

He didn't repeat his Caulfield performance in the 2017 Melbourne Cup , finishing ninth. "It's fantastic, it's what we race horses for".

To support his argument, Mourinho hired an expert called Simao Valente, who is described as "an Assistant Professor at the University of Lisbon and an expert in the Portuguese language, including colloquialism".

Mourinho accepted the words ascribed to him by the FA's expert, but said they were an "inwardly-directed expression of relief and happiness", with the manager asking who in fact had been offended by his outburst. Thus, the objective person would have had to lip read JM's mouth and interpret Portuguese colloquialisms to accurately decipher the comments.

Valente said that "the victory was vindication" and he did not consider the words used in the context to be abusive, insulting or improper.

The 29-year-old has found the net just four times in 27 appearances since joining United and has even been dropped on occasion by Jose Mourinho this season.

"So ask the FA, they will translate for you", beamed Mourinho. Xavier said that he believed Mourinho twice said "Vós sois uns filhos da puta", which Xavier said translates to "sons of a whore" in English.

JM [Mourinho] was clearly celebrating it, without aiming the words at anyone in particular.
