Chelsea manager suspended and fined after outburst against referee
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has bee given a suspended one-match ban and fine for outburst against referee
After the defeat, Mourinho criticised the referee saying his was afraid to give decisions for Chelsea during an epic seven minute rant.
The Chelsea manager fumed at the decision of the referee to book Radamel Falcao for diving with the score at 1-1 when Mourinho felt it should have been a penalty.
“The result 1-1 is a huge penalty and once more we don't get and a penalty is a crucial moment in the game with the result at 1-1, and I repeat that if FA wants to punish me they can punish me they don't punish other managers but they punish me, it's not a problem for me,” Mourinho said.
The football authorities has however chosen to suspend the one match ban.
However, should Mourinho make any further public comments in breach of the same rule before October 13, 2016 the suspension will immediately be lifted.
“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,” an FA statement read.
“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.”
