FA will investigate Mourinho’s comments about referee Anthony Taylor
One of Jose Mourinho’s early mind-games seems to have backfired on him
According to numerous reports, the FA will be looking into the comments made by the Manchester United manager ahead of the clash against Liverpool regarding the choice of the main official.
Mourinho has expressed doubts over Anthony Taylor’s capability to do his job properly, after the initial angry reaction from Merseyside to his appointment.
“I have my view, but I learned a lesson by being so many times punished by some words, so I don’t want to say anything about it”, he said.
“I think Mr Taylor is a very good referee, but I think somebody with intention is putting such a pressure on him that I feel it will be difficult for him to have a very good performance.”
“Our disciplinary record is really, really good. We don’t have problems at all at this level,” he added.
“We are a team that plays with discipline, that is following everything that was told to us in the meetings that we had with the representatives of the Premier League and the referees.
“We don’t press referees, we behave on the touchline so that’s a point that we are very comfortable with.”
Mourinho has indeed been fined by the FA before for his comments on referees.
