FA to hand Man Utd boss Mourinho a pass despite Southampton dismissal

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is set to avoid FA punishment after his dismissal in victory at Southampton.

The Sun says Mourinho was sent off in stoppage time of Saturday's 1-0 Prem win at Southampton for stepping on to the pitch.

But, unlike red-carded players, managers do not face an automatic ban.

And the FA could go lightly on him when they read ref Craig Pawson's report today.

Also, the club will not face an FA charge over their fans' “racist" Romelu Lukaku chant — for now.

The club is trying to identify fans who sang the song which refers to the striker's manhood.

If the club does act, they will avoid an FA punishment.
