Jose Mourinho could avoid Chelsea v Manchester United touchline ban

The former Chelsea boss has until 6pm on Friday to respond to the charge for allegedly using abusive language after United's 3-2 comeback win over Newcastle before the worldwide break.

Pereira and Pogba, both of whom were not playing, were pictured laughing in the stands on the Frenchman's social media - a video Mourinho believed took place while United were trailing in the latter stages of the game.

The incident happened just a day after Mourinho confirmed Pogba had been stripped of his vice-captaincy responsibilities at Old Trafford. After some impressive displays, he was called up to represent Belgium's national team by Roberto Martinez this month but missed their second match against the Netherlands which ended in a 1-1 draw.

I'm thinking more of a Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard or David Silva.


'I have a very good relationship with him, with the players.

"Pogba was part of a great team but he's come to United where he's got nobody to control him like he had at Juventus".

"I feel like people at Liverpool and Man City are looking at us and laughing like we did at them many years ago", Scholes continued.

"It scares me that these really talented players will be sold and be brilliant for another club". I could see that happening with Martial.


"If the team don't play well then they're brought back in for an hour, then left out".

This news shall be received quite warmly by the club's fan-base, as Martial is undoubtedly one of the biggest talents in European football, with the potential to become a world beater if he performs consistently enough.

"They look like wingers and they're getting slagged off by the manager". Confidence does wonders for performance, after all.
