Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has been reminded of his responsibilities by the Football Association after Saturday’s brawl.

Meanwhile, Chelsea assistant manager Marco Ianni charged with improper conduct following the scuffle.

It follows the touchline melee after Ross Barkley’s injury-time equaliser in the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.

Ianni celebrated the goal in front of the United bench, which prompted a furious reaction from Mourinho, who had to be restrained.

An FA statement read: “Chelsea coach Marco Ianni has been charged following the game against Manchester United on Saturday.

“It is alleged that his behaviour in the 96th minute constituted improper conduct. He has until 6pm on Thursday 25 October 2018 to respond to the charge.

“In relation to this incident, Jose Mourinho has been formally reminded of his responsibilities, whilst both clubs have received similar official reminders in terms of the behaviour expected of their staff and players at all times whilst in the technical area.”
