FA have given Jose Mourinho suspended one-match stadium ban and also fined £50,000 after admitting breaching Football Association rules in an interview.
Mourinho is punished due to his remarks made against Southampton game, losing 3-1 at home and called the referee ‘afraid’.
An FA statement said: ‘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 post-match 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.’
At Friday’s news conference Jose Mourinho, ahead of Aston Villa Clash, said: “I have to be honest with myself. We have got the written reasons [for his fine from the FA] and I have decided to appeal.”
“Now is the time to stop with my opinions and not to add anything more. I was objective in my sadness at the situation.”
“Maybe I am naive but, for me, English football fans and the English passion for the game is what makes me like this country and this football so much.
“That is not the FA. It is the people.”
While a day earlier Mourinho regarding his ban said: “I’m happy I don’t have an electronic tag. £50,000 is a disgrace. The possibility of getting a stadium ban is astonishing.”
