Man Utd manager Mourinho will be in dugout for Man City

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will be in the dugout during Sunday's Manchester derby, despite the FA appealing a decision to overturn a charge against the Portuguese for using foul and abusive language.

Mourinho was charged by the FA after he was accused of swearing at cameras following United's win over Newcastle United last month.

However, the Independent Regulatory Commission cleared Mourinho of any wrongdoing. It was the first time the FA had a charge overturned since 2013.

But English football's governing body is not giving up on the case and have decided to appeal the Commission's finding.

That appeal will not be heard until next week which leaves Mourinho free to work from the dugout at Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
