Jose Mourinho has been charged with improper conduct for his behaviour during Man United's Premier League clash with West Ham yesterday.

The United manager was sent to the stands by referee Jon Moss for kicking a bottle in frustration during the game which ended in a 1-1 draw.

This is the second time in two months that the 53-year-old has been charged by the Football Association. He was previously sent off during United's game against Burnley at the end of October for remonstrating with officials. He was later handed a one-match ban as well as an £8,000 fine.

Mourinho has until 6pm on December 1st to respond to the charge.
