The Red Devils coach angrily kicked a water bottle after the Frenchman had been booked for simulation during the first half at Old Trafford on Sunday

Jose Mourinho has been sent off during Manchester United's match against West Ham after kicking a water bottle on the touchline.

The Red Devils manager reacted angrily to referee Jon Moss' decision to caution Paul Pogba for diving, though replays showed the decision was correct.

Expecting a free-kick to be awarded in Pogba's favour, Mourinho was furious when Moss pointed the other way and stormed across his technical area before launching a kick at a stray bottle.

The incident was spotted by fourth official Anthony Taylor, who subsequently alerted Moss before Mourinho was sent to the stands.

It is not the first time the former Chelsea boss has been punished for disciplinary problems this season. Earlier this month, Mourinho was handed a one-match touchline ban and fined for two separate offences.

During United's match against Burnley on October 29, he was sent to the stands by referee Mark Clattenburg after an incident in the tunnel area at half-time for which he was later charged with using "abusive and/or insulting words to a match official".

Mourinho was then hit with a further charge for comments made about Taylor before the game against Liverpool on October 17, which the Football Association found constituted improper conduct and brought the game into disrepute.

The 53-year-old suggested Taylor, who was scheduled to referee the game, would be under "pressure" at Anfield because of the fact he is based in Manchester.

Mourinho opted not to sit outside after being sent off during the West Ham game and instead retreated to a private room from which he could continue to watch the match.
