Manchester, Nov 1 (IANS) There was more bad news in store for under-pressure Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho as he was given a second Football Association (FA) charge in a week following his dismissal during Saturday's 0-0 draw with Burnley.

Mourinho, who on Thursday was charged over comments he made about referee Anthony Taylor, was sent to the Old Trafford Stadium's stands by Mark Clattenburg.

Possible punishments include a warning, fine, touchline ban or stadium ban. The FA have acted after considering Clattenburg's match report, according to BBC.

Mourinho appeared to be angry when United were not given a penalty during Saturday's match, after Jon Flanagan challenged Matteo Darmian inside the Burnley box.

The 53-year-old emerged for the second half but was escorted to a seat in the stands before being moved a second time, this time to the directors' box. He declined to speak to the media after the match.

United are eighth in the English Premier League (EPL) and yet to win after their four games.
