The headaches for Mourinho continue
England’s Football Association accused Ashley Young of unsportsmanlike play, and the Manchester United rider risked being punished for three matches. This is the situation in the past match against Southampton, when Young struck with the elbow Dusan Tadic, but the judges did not notice that. The replay shows that the Red Devil player is deliberate.
He has a deadline until 19:00 today to give an explanation if he thinks the prosecution is wrong. If he is found guilty, Young will be sanctioned for duels against Everton, Darby County and Stoke City, and will be able to play again on Jan. 20 at Burnley’s visit to Premier League.
It will be another blow for Jose Mourinho, who can not count on a lot of injuries, to which Romello Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic joined yesterday.
