Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, has been found guilty of improper conduct during last month’s 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa and was charged with a £8.000 (R140.000) fine.
Mourinho was sent off during stoppage time for entering the pitch and confronting referee, Chris Foy, following the late dismissal of Ramirez – Chelsea’s second red card on the day after Willian had also been sent off.
The FA announced today that Mourinho was found guilty of the charges after he attended a personal hearing on Wednesday 9 April.
The official FA statement reads:
“Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been fined £8,000 and warned as to his future conduct following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing.
“Mourinho denied a breach of FA Rule E3 in that his behaviour in re-entering the field of play and approaching the Match Referee in an attempt to speak to him, in or around the 90th minute of the game against Aston Villa on 15 March 2014, amounted to improper conduct.”
Mourinho has continuously stated his dissatisfaction with the referee performance, which he believes to be the reason for Chelsea's defeat.
