Jose Mourinho charged by FA for allegedly swearing in Portuguese

first_img Mourinho spoke into a TV camera as he left the pitch following a game which may have saved his Man United career Footage shows Mourinho saying something, apparently in Portuguese, while at one point looking into a camera, as he headed towards the tunnel after the final whistle.He also made a gesture with his right hand while speaking, pointing with his little finger.The 55-year-old, who claimed after the match that he was the subject of a media “manhunt”, said when asked about the gesture: “It is a finger. Smaller than the others, but it is a finger.” Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho had been charged by the Football Association over comments he made following Manchester United’s victory against Newcastle United in the Premier League.The Red Devils boss appeared to speak in Portuguese as he addressed a TV camera after watching his side come from behind to win 3-2 at Old Trafford earlier this month.

Compassion is not Jetstars strong suit

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: J.L Jetstar have been criticised again for their lack of compassion after charging a couple over $400 for rescheduling their flights due to a death in their family.The news comes less than a week after the airline was slammed by Paralympian Kurt Fearnly for forcing him to check his personal wheelchair.The Townsville Bulletin reported Monday that Queenslander Christine Cook had planned to fly to Sydney with her husband Leon last Thursday.However, her mother who had had a long battle with illness, passed away on Tuesday.Upon re-booking the flights to Sydney, Mrs Cook said Jetstar had charged her with a $403 fee.Mr Cook said that it was impossible to contact the airline “or anyone at it with some compassion” to appeal the charge”“I couldn’t speak to anyone in Australia; I kept getting bounce around (the country” he said.”Eventually I was put in contact with someone in Malaysia, who gave me a number I couldn’t access. It was a joke.”Jetstar said yesterday that it had, on reflection, decided to waive the charge. <a href=”http://www.etbtravelnews.global/click/1f5fc/” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://adsvr.travelads.biz/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=10&amp;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=a5c63036″ border=”0″ alt=””></a>last_img read more
