Manchester United are “vigorously contesting” a Football Association charge against manager Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils boss was allleged to have sworn – in Portuguese – into a TV camera following hisside’s dramatic victoryover Newcastle at Old Trafford on October 6.

Mourinho appeared to swear in Portuguese

The FA used a lip reader to investigate the remarks and subsequently charged him with using abusive, insulting or improper language.

Mourinhohad been under intense pressure heading into the match, with reports he would be sacked regardless of the Premier League encounter against the Magpies.

United went on to rally from wo goals down to secure amemorable 3-2 victoryover the Magpies.

Mourinho was given an extension until Wednesday to answer the FA charge and United have decided to challenge it.

An independent commission will now decide whether the 55-year-old is guilty of the FA charge.

Should he be found to have breached the governing body’s rules, Mourinho could be hit be with a touchline ban.

United, meanwhile, have launched a review of their pitchside security protocols after three supporters got onto the field during their Champions League clash with Juventus.

UEFA has charged the Old Trafford giants for the “field invasion” during Tuesday night’s Group H encounter,won 1-0 by the perennial Italian champions.

Shortly after play got under way, a fan ran across the pitch, with his hand down the back of his trousers, before belatedly being restrained by stewards close to the players.

Two further people made it onto the field at the end of the match as they sought to get close to former United hero Cristiano Ronaldo.
