No action will be taken against Manchester United or Manchester City for the altercation that took place after City’s 2-1 Premier League win at Old Trafford earlier this month.
The visitors’ celebrations after the December 10 contest are alleged to have sparked a row involving several players and staff from both teams in the corridor outside the dressing rooms.
During that altercation, it is understood that milk and water were thrown at United boss Jose Mourinho from within the City dressing room.
But in a statement, the Football Association said: “Following a review of the evidence provided by the clubs and independent eyewitnesses, the FA will be taking no formal action.”
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho will not face any disciplinary action from the FA for his comments before the recent derby but has once more been warned about his future behaviour.
The FA did not specify which pre-match remarks it was investigating but it is understood to have been concerned by the Manchester United manager’s suggestion that City players make “tactical fouls” to break up opponent’s attacks.
In a statement, the FA said it has decided to take “no formal action” after reviewing evidence provided by the club but has “reminded Jose Mourinho any further public comments about match officials may result in disciplinary action” – the former Chelsea boss has previous in this regard.
