Jose Mourinho charged: The Man United boss' disciplinary record

Stewart Robson feels Jose Mourinho must return to the basics and get back to what made him a successful manager.
ESPN FC's Stewart Robson explains why Jose Mourinho may have lost some confidence after the first month of the season.
Craig Burley steams up at the wretched state Jose Mourinho and Manchester United currently find themselves in.

On Thursday, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was charged with misconduct by the English Football Association (FA).

Here, ESPN FC looks back at some of Mourinho's previous disciplinary indiscretions.

Feb. 23, 2005: Mourinho claimed he saw Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard speaking to referee Anders Frisk at half-time of Chelsea's Champions League round-of-16 first-leg loss at the Camp Nou. He received a £8,900 fine and a two-match touchline ban.

Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez sublime in runaway Real Madrid win

Marco Asensio bagged a brace in Real Madrid's Copa del Rey thrashing om Wednesday.
Marco Asensio was one of the standout performers for Real Madrid in an easy Copa del Rey win.

Real Madrid ran out comfortable 7-1 winners at the Segunda B outfit Cultural Leonesa, who put up a spirited performance. Former Barca B striker Benja will have thoroughly enjoyed denying Real a clean sheet, but goals from Alvaro Morata, Marco Asensio, Nacho and Mariano (with the unfortunate Gianni Zuiverloon also on the score sheet) evidenced the gulf between the sides.


Real did not field an ineligible player and avoided a repeat of the 2009-10 Alcorconazo, both of which were basic prematch...

Ronaldo out as Zinedine Zidane puts faith in Real Madrid subs vs. Leonesa

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno assesses how Cristiano Ronaldo can turn around his slowest ever La Liga start.
Real Madrid earned all three points against Athletic Bilbao thanks to Alvaro Morata's late game-winning goal.

With only two days to rest after a hard-fought victory against Athletic Bilbao, Real Madrid play again on Wednesday evening. Their trip to Leon, where they will meet the fascinating Cultural Leonesa, marks their comeback to the Copa del Rey after last season's ridiculous exit due to an administrative mistake when they lined up a non-eligible player, Denis Cheryshev.

Sunday's win brought plenty of topics for discussion, both positive and negative, among media and supporters. The team looked comfortable...

Why do stars such as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo take the penalties?

Lionel Messi converted a crucial penalty at the weekend but hasn't had the best spot-kick record.

On Saturday, Lionel Messi buried a 94th-minute penalty past Valencia goalkeeper Diego Alves at the Mestalla. It was a hugely significant goal that meant Barcelona travelled back up the coast with three points after a 3-2 victory. In a wider context, it might have a significant impact upon Messi's goal-scoring record at the end of his career.

For all Messi's superhuman talents -- there's an argument that the Argentine is or has been the world's best dribbler, creator and goal scorer during his...

Qatar-owned La Cultural's Real Madrid clash could lead to better things

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno assesses how Cristiano Ronaldo can turn around his slowest ever La Liga start.

A staple of each Spanish season is when a small lower division club "wins the lottery" and draws one of the La Liga giants in the Copa del Rey.

This year the TV cameras were at the ground of Segunda B side La Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa to capture the screams and cheers as the part-timers learned they would face Real Madrid in the round of 32.

Madrid's opponents this year are no ordinary minnows however, even though their 93 years of history includes just one season in the Primera Division. La...

Jamie Vardy's inclusion aside, France Football's 30-man list of nominees for the 2016 Ballon d'Or had a familiar look to it.

Cristiano Ronaldo and five-time winner Lionel Messi, the current holder, will once again be in the final reckoning with Luis Suarez, Neymar and Antoine Griezmann among the other candidates hoping to make the final three-man shortlist for January's award ceremony.

But there were several star names and big achievers of the current calendar year who were conspicuous by their...
