Jose Mourinho: Man Utd manager sent to the stands in Burnley match

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was sent to the stands at half-time in the 0-0 draw with Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday.

Mourinho emerged for the second half and was escorted to a seat in the stands at Old Trafford as his side dropped to eighth in the table.

The 53-year-old Portuguese then moved to the directors' box.

Referee Mark Clattenburg had dismissed a Manchester United penalty appeal late in the first half.

"I think the events of recent weeks have got to him," said MOTD pundit Danny Murphy. "I think that it was a penalty, though."

It comes after a week in which Mourinho was charged by the Football Association for comments he made about referee Anthony Taylor and also said living alone in Manchester is a "bit of a disaster".

United are eighth in the Premier League and without a win in their past four games. Mourinho has taken 15 points from his first 10 league games in charge of the club - two fewer than David Moyes.
