Jose Mourinho has expressed his relief after avoiding a suspension following his sending off at Southampton.
The Manchester United boss is in Russia for Wednesday’s Champions League clash with CSKA Moscow and was asked about the FA’s decision not to take further action for being sent to the stands near the end of Saturday’s 1-0 win at St Mary’s.
“If I am not punished it is because there were no reasons for the sending off,” Mourinho said.
“I am happy that was recognised and that I can be doing my work normally against Crystal Palace. That is enough for me.”
Mourinho was also asked how much his team would miss midfielder Marouane Fellaini on Wednesday night.
The Belgian has not recovered from an ankle injury he suffered in a tackle by Shane Long in the victory over the Saints.
Mourinho added: “The solutions are not many. We are trying not to focus on individual battles in specific areas on the pitch.
“We are going to have a team with quality and balance to try to win the match. That’s our objective.”
