Jose Mourinho has been handed one-match stadium ban by The FA for his comments made after the Southampton game where he had blamed the ref for not giving the penalty decision in favor of Chelsea. Mourinho had claimed that refs are too scared to give decision for Chelsea.
Following that, Mourinho was charged with misconduct with a ban looming large. Mourinho tried to pled guilty in the matter but was of no use as Fa earlier released a statement confirming their decision of one-match ban and a fine of 50k.
The statement read: “Jose Mourinho has been given a suspended one-match stadium ban and fined £50,000 after he admitted a breach of FA Rules in relation to postmatch media comments.
“The Chelsea manager was charged for misconduct following the game against Southampton on Saturday 3 October 2015. It was alleged his remarks constituted improper conduct in that they alleged and/or implied bias on the part of a match official or match officials and/or brought the game into disrepute.
“Mr. Mourinho’s suspended stadium ban will be immediately invoked should he be found by an Independent Regulatory Commission to have committed a further breach of FA Rule E3 for any comment or statement to or through the media before 13 October 2016.”
Mourinho will have to watch his words as it will land him in further trouble if found guilty in next one year. Chelsea face Aston Villa following the International Break with Mourinho under severe pressure of delivering results for an under-pressure Chelsea team.
