Mourinho Banned And Fined

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been given a one-match stadium ban suspension and fined £50,000 by the Football Association due to his rash and irrational comments following his side loss to Southampton in their last English Premier League game.

Mourinho was charged by The FA on October 5 for his uncontrolled comments and felt that Mourinho should have been able to comport himself better even though he must have been seething from his second loss in a matter of days.

Mourinho who is known for his big mouth in the football community and who always has someone to blame of recent for Chelsea’s losses decided to blame the referee’s decision for not awarding Chelsea a penalty in the Southampton match and he felt this made Chelsea lose the match to Southampton.

Chelsea was sent to the 16th spot on the English premier League table right after the defeat and Mourinho knew this would happen if they lost the match and what this meant for the team.

Radamel Falcao was brought down by goalkeeper beat Maarten Stekelenburg but replays showed that Falcao purposely left his feet in the keeper’s hands to win a penalty and therefore, referee Robert Madley blew for a goal kick and awarded the striker a yellow card for diving.

This angered Mourinho, as he felt this decision clearly tipped the match in Southampton’s favour and was the turning point of the match.

The FA however, felt Mourinho’s post-match comments were not good enough and he should have bridled his tongue and fined him £50,000 as well as a suspended one-match stadium ban with Mourinho admitting that he breached the FA rules in post-match comments.
