Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been given a one-match touchline ban for kicking a water bottle in the technical area during a Premier League game at the weekend.

Mourinho will serve the punishment in United’s League Cup quarterfinal match against West Ham at Old Trafford on Wednesday, with the English Football Association saying he accepted his behavior “amounted to improper conduct.”

It was against the same opponent, and at the same stadium, when Mourinho kicked the bottle in anger at United midfielder Paul Pogba getting booked for diving on Sunday. The Portuguese coach was sent to the stands because of his conduct.

It will be the second touchline ban this season for Mourinho, who was suspended for one match for using abusive or insulting words toward a referee at halftime of a game against Burnley at Old Trafford.
