LONDON (AP) — Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been charged by the English Football Association for the second time in a week, this time for verbally abusing a referee in a Premier League game.

Mourinho was sent to the stands during United's 0-0 draw against Burnley at Old Trafford on Saturday, with the FA charging him with misconduct for using "abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official" in the tunnel area at halftime.

Mourinho appeared to be most upset when referee Mark Clattenburg did not award United a penalty after Burnley defender Jon Flanagan challenged Matteo Darmian in the area. Clattenburg didn't give a foul.

Mourinho was already in trouble with England's soccer authorities after questioning whether it would be difficult for referee Anthony Taylor to have a "very good performance" in a game against Liverpool on Oct. 17. He was charged with misconduct on Thursday.
