Man United chiefs have ordered Jose Mourinho to bite his lip after latest FA rap

Manchester United v Juventus - UEFA Champions League Group H

Jose Mourinho has endured a turbulent start to the season at Manchester United.

The Portuguese manager was reported to be on the brink of losing his job at the start of the month after accumulating just 10 points from his opening seven Premier League games.

But Mourinho's side have shown improvements in recent weeks after encouraging second half performances against Newcastle United and Chelsea.

However, while performances on the pitch has shown an improvement in recent weeks, Mourinho is still attracting headlines for his behaviour.

Mourinho launched a number of expletives in Portuguese directly into the BT Sport cameras after their comeback win against Newcastle earlier this month.

The 55-year-old has since been charged for using abusive language. He is currently appealing the charge but could be given a touchline ban if that fails.

He was also involved in an altercation with a Chelsea employee during their draw at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

With Mourinho hitting the headlines for the wrong reasons in recent times, United's hierarchy have now taken action.

According to the Sun, Mourinho has been ordered to bite his lip by United chiefs.

It has gotten the point that the Glazer family have also got involved.

United's owners fear his outbursts are damaging United’s worldwide reputation.

That will come as welcome news to United fans, with many wanting to see Mourinho concentrate on getting results on the pitch rather than making questionable comments to the media.

The Sun go on to state that Mourinho's relationship with Paul Scholes is also of serious concern.

The two have been embroiled in a war of words in recent times, with the United legend often questioning both the tactics and behaviour of the Portuguese manager.

It is believed that they are concerned of their relationship because of the wedge it has driven between club, manager and supporters.

United's hierarchy are clearly not all happy with Mourinho's behaviour in recent times and it seems they want to him to become more reserved in order to protect the image of the club.

Whether Mourinho will listen to his superiors, however, remains to be seen.
