Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho Avoids FA punishment over Abusive Language Charge

Wayne Rooney Urges Man United Flops To Show Respect

The higher-ups at the club are reportedly fully prepared to say no to any deal they don't believe is in the long-term interests of the club, even if it means further unsettling Mourinho, who reportedly remains insistent on bringing in a new centre back at long last.

Wayne Rooney believes Manchester United stars must step up their game to improve the club's chances of competing for silverware this term.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho walks off the pitch at Old Trafford at the end of the Newcastle match. "We improve some of the players that were nearly there but not there - Lingard, Alexis - these kind of players, that were already available but not yet at a good level".

"In this moment we are outside top four so the point is now to get the points we need to try and be in the end of December, like I expect to be, in a better position than we are in now at this moment".

In an interview with Football Focus, published on the BBC Sport website, DC United striker Rooney said: "Obviously they are going through a hard period at the minute, but José Mourinho is very experienced and I think some players have to do a little bit better".

Manchester United's defence will have to be wary of Callum Wilson's impressive form given the powerful striker has scored five times and has made four assists in 10 outings in the league this season.

Eddie Howe's side won their first Premier League clash with United, 2-1 back in 2015, but the Reds are unbeaten in five subsequent meetings (W4, D1) including the last two on Bournemouth's home venue.

"In this part of the season, we play away against possibly the three biggest candidates for the title, in Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City, so the calendar was not nice to us".

A statement from the FA read: "A charge against Jose Mourinho for allegedly using language which was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper has been found not proven following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today".

However, Mourinho said that the reason United went to such lengths to contest the charge, putting forward detailed linguistic analysis and citing precedents of other football figures swearing during matches, was because he was convinced of his innocence.
