Man United boss Jose Mourinho claims FA treat him differently to other managers

first_imgJose Mourinho claims football authorities treat him differently to other managers – and the Manchester United boss wants that to stop.The Portuguese has won medals throughout his career but the route to glory has not been without controversy and fall outs.Mourinho’s appointment at Old Trafford led to the resumption of his testy relationship with the Football Association, who this week handed him a touchline ban for the second time within a month.The latest suspension came after booting a water bottle in frustration in Sunday’s Premier League draw at West Ham, leading to a charge of improper conduct that saw him in the stands when United met the east Londoners in the EFL Cup three days later.It mattered little given his side triumphed 4-1 but Mourinho feels he is treated differently to others managers.“The only thing I would like would be the same rules for everyone,” he said following the latest punishment.“Let’s go back to the last one. I kick a bottle of water, I cannot do it. If I do it, it’s a sending off. After the sending off, there is a punishment.“So I accept that is a sending off. In fact, if you see the images, when the referee comes, I go – not a word, not a complaint. I accept the suspension of one match and it’s as simple as that.“But it has to be the same for every manager. It has to be the same.”Mourinho may feel aggrieved but it is understood that he would not have been handed a ban had the bottle incident been his first offence.Given the sending off against Burnley and subsequent ban for misconduct, the FA felt a one-match touchline ban and £16,000 fine – double the standard amount – would the correct sanction.Mourinho will be aware of the code of conduct related to technical area protocol, but may well be aggrieved that old foe Arsene Wenger avoided such punishment when kicking a bottle at Old Trafford in 2009.The United boss will be back on the touchline in Sunday’s clash at Everton, where they arrive with 20 points following their worst start to a Premier League season.It means the Red Devils are 11 points off the top after just 13 matches, leading Mourinho to admit the title could already be out of their grasp.“When I was speaking about destinations, I think the destination is for us is to be champions,” he said. “Maybe not this year, maybe we cannot do it.“I don’t know. In football anything is possible but maybe we don’t do it.“There’s a gap between us and the top of the table but the destination is for us to be champion.“I don’t know when, maybe next year, maybe this year, maybe in two years’ time.“Maybe when I’m not here and somebody else comes, but if we follow this direction the destination is to be champions.”Mourinho is still instilling his philosophy and shaping the squad, which could soon alter as the likes of Memphis Depay, Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger continue to be linked with a January exit.“I will not push anyone because nobody deserves that,” he said. “The way they work, they don’t deserve that.“On Wednesday I was in the hotel and my assistants came here to train the group of five who were not selected and stayed here.“They told me what I expected – amazing effort, amazing commitment, amazing professionalism.“Depay, Ashley Young, (Marouane) Fellaini – the people (that) stay here were fantastic, so it hurts me not to select them.“You see that sometimes I do a little bit of rotation. One day I play one, another day I leave one at home, then put one on the bench.“Nobody deserves to be pushed, for me to say ‘it’s better for you to leave’.“But I will have to understand that frustration is something that comes to the players now and again in certain moments of their careers and seasons.“Frustration is something that arrives and we will analyse it if anyone who shows me that frustration has a desire to leave.“But, for me, it’s very comfortable to have all of them. But it hurts me.” 1 Mourinho was handed a second touchline ban within a month last_img read more

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! PASADENA, Calif. (AP) _ Ben Olson threw for 318 yards and three touchdowns in his first college start, leading UCLA to a 31-10 victory over Utah in both teams’ opener Saturday. The 6-foot-5, 227-pound redhead hadn’t started a game since his senior year in high school nearly five years ago _ when he was the nation’s No. 1 recruit. He transferred from Brigham Young in January 2005, after redshirting his freshman year and spending two years on a Mormon church mission in Calgary, Alberta. Last season, Olson played sparingly as the backup to Drew Olson after missing the first three games with a broken left throwing hand. This Saturday was all his. Olson showed the poise of his 23 years, completing 25 of 33 passes for 318 yards and no interceptions in a game that began in 96-degree heat at the Rose Bowl. It was the most yardage by a debuting Bruins quarterback since Tommy Maddox had 253 against Michigan in 1990. Olson was perfect on his first seven passes, hitting seven different receivers, all for first downs. The Utes had won their last four games against Pac-10 opponents, but they didn’t mount a serious challenge in the second half. Utah was 0-for-11 on third down, and managed 285 yards of total offense to UCLA’s 418. Olson was clearly superior to Utah senior quarterback Brett Ratliff, who came in 2-0 as a starter after leading the Utes to season-ending victories over BYU and Georgia Tech in the Emerald Bowl. Ratliff was 13-of-31 for 162 yards, with one touchdown and one interception. UCLA extended its lead to 21-10 on Olson’s 19-yard pass to Matt Willis that completed a six-play, 72-yard drive in the third quarter. Justin Medlock kicked a 25-yard field goal that kept UCLA ahead 24-10 in the fourth quarter. Olson’s third touchdown made it 31-10 on a 9-yard pass to Marcus Everett. Olson had the announced crowd of 59,709 cheering early when he connected with Ryan Moya over the middle for a 16-yard touchdown pass on UCLA’s opening drive. The Bruins then stopped Utah on its 44-yard line before being penalized for too many players on the field, keeping the Utes’ drive alive. But Ratliff’s 30-yard pass to Marquis Wilson was called offsides and the Utes were forced to punt. Olson’s first incompletion occurred as Logan Paulsen ran into the end zone. A few plays later, a 46-yard field goal attempt by Medlock went wide left. The Utes tied the game at 7 on a 26-yard pass from Ratliff to Brent Casteel in the second quarter, giving their sizable section of red-clad fans reason to cheer. The drive’s big play came on fourth-and-1 at Utah’s 41-yard line, when defensive back Eric Weddle carried 5 yards for a first down. The Utes then notched consecutive first downs, leading to Ratliff’s scoring pass. The Utes pulled Ratliff on their next possession, replacing him with Oklahoma transfer Tommy Grady, whose second pass of the drive was picked off by Alterraun Verner _ UCLA’s first interception return for a touchdown by a freshman since 1989. Stepping in front of Casteel, Verner snagged the ball and ran 34 yards up UCLA’s sideline for a 14-7 lead. Verner had an 18-yard fumble recovery in the closing minutes, too. Louie Sakoda kicked a 44-yard field goal that left Utah trailing 14-10 at halftime.last_img read more
