“José Mourinho likely to escape charges for role in Super Copa melee”
“José Mourinho is likely to escape punishment for his behaviour during the Spanish Super Cup on Wednesday night, despite appearing to thrust a finger into the eye of Barcelona's assistant manager, Tito Vilanova, during a mêlée at the side of the pitch in the final minute. Vilanova slapped Mourinho back during a touchline brawl in which David Villa punched Mesut Ozil and players and technical staff squared up to each other. Trouble flared after Marcelo launched into a wild tackle on Cesc Fábregas, leading to his dismissal.
