Jose Mourinho fined £25,000 for referee gang up comments


Mourinho said last December that there is gang up of referee’s against his Chelsea side in league games.

'The media, commentators, other managers are all doing it [putting pressure on referees].

'There is a campaign against Chelsea. I don't know why there is this campaign and I do not care.

'Everybody knows it was a penalty.'

He made the comment in the game against Southampton which ended 1-1 on December 28 where they were denied a penalty.

A month later, The Football Association ruled Mourinho's quotes as "improper and brought the game into disrepute".
