Mourinho asked to explain City comments

Dec 14, 2017 - 6:23 PM Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been asked by the English Football Association to provide his observations on comments he made ahead of last weekend's derby match against Manchester City.

Mourinho has until December 18 to respond to the request, relating to comments made on December 8, two days before the match which City won 2-1 at Old Trafford.

An FA statement did not specify which particularly remarks were of interest, although Mourinho said in a press conference that it only takes a "little bit of wind" to knock City's players over."

In his pre-match press conference, Mourinho said: ''They are a good team. 'They defend well, they react well to the moment they lose the ball.

"They have amazing players, they have a fantastic coach, they have lots of good things.

''If you ask me one thing that I don't like a lot it's that they lose their balance very easily.

''You know, a little bit of wind and they fall.''

Both City and United have already been asked to provide observations on a post-match bust-up in the tunnel at Old Trafford.

It has been reported that Mourinho went to the City dressing room to complain about excessive post-match celebrations, sparking a fracas in which he had milk and water thrown at him while City coach Mikel Arteta suffered a cut to the head.
