Mourinho's original charge was dropped on October 31, with the FA releasing a statement that read: "A charge against Jose Mourinho for allegedly using language which was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper has been found not proven following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today".

But the FA have chose to appeal the decision after considering written reasons by the Independent Regulatory Commission inquiry.

However, Mourinho argued that context was key, and it was simply an explosion of emotion at the end of the match and was closer to "hell yeah" or "f**k yeah".

Mourinho accepted the words ascribed to him by the FA's expert, but said they were an "inwardly-directed expression of relief and happiness", with the manager asking who in fact had been offended by his outburst.

After coming back to win 3-2 to a backdrop of intense scrutiny about the Portuguese's Old Trafford future, the 55-year-old manager was filmed in animated mood.

It was also taken into consideration that the game had ended in dramatic fashion with Alexis Sanchez scoring a stoppage-time victor after United had been 2-0 down at half time.

The FA's own appeal will not affect Mourinho's current standing on the United bench - he will be there for tonight's Champions League game versus Juventus and this weekend's derby with rivals Manchester City.

Xavier stated Mourinho used the phrase "vos sois uns filhos da puta" twice, which literally translate as "sons of a w****".

Valente interpreted the repeated phrase as "vao levar no cu, filhos da puta", which he translated to mean "go take it in the a***, sons of the w****" in the literal sense, and "f*** off you sons of b******" or "f*** off you a*******" as an idiomatic translation.

The written reasons explaining the commission's decision show that both Mourinho and the FA employed Portuguese language experts.

" In this case, JM was celebrating victory following a significant and dramatic conclusion to the game, without aiming the words at anyone in particular, the comments were inaudible, said in another language, and even if a Portuguese speaker could decipher what was said by lip reading, this translated to "f*** yeah" or "hell yeah" which we find is not improper in the context and manner in which it was said".
