Jose Mourinho sent to Old Trafford stands at half-time after raging over penalty claim
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was sent to the stands at the half-time interval of the Red Devils' game against Burnley at Old Trafford this afternoon.
United went into the break at 0-0, having failed to score against Sean Dyche's men despite dominating the ball.
Towards the end of the half, Matteo Darmian appeared to be brought down in the box by former Liverpool defender John Flanagan.
However, referee Mark Clattenburg did not award the penalty to the Red Devils, much to Mourinho's disgust.
Mourinho going berserk at Clattenburg. Wants a penalty for apparent trip on Darmian. #mufc— Samuel Luckhurst (@samuelluckhurst) October 29, 2016
Darmian tripped should have been Utd penalty— Philip Neville (@fizzer18) October 29, 2016
The Portuguese did not return to the United dugout after the interval, as Clattenburg instructed fourth official Kevin Friend to give the manager his marching orders:

Jose Mourinho now sat in the stands after apparently being sent off at half time. Presumably to do with Darmian penalty incident.— Rob Dawson (@RobDawsonMEN) October 29, 2016
Mourinho is already in hot water with the FA, having been charged over comments he made about referee Anthony Taylor ahead of United's game against Liverpool last Monday week.
