Chelsea Boss Jose Mourinho Given Stadium Ban, Fine – FA



Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been hit with a one-match stadium ban and a £40,000 ($61,680, 56,000 euros) fine after admitting to a charge of misconduct, the Football Association announced on Monday.
The charge related to Mourinho’s conduct towards referee Jon Moss during Chelsea’s recent 2-1 loss at West Ham United, which saw him sent to the stands, and means he will miss Saturday’s game at Stoke City.
“Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today, Jose Mourinho has been given a one-match stadium suspension with immediate effect and fined £40,000,” the FA said in a statement.
“The Chelsea manager admitted an FA charge of misconduct regarding his language and/or behaviour towards the match officials in or around the dressing room area during half-time of the game against West Ham United on 24 October 2015.”
Mourinho, 52, is currently appealing against a suspended one-game stadium ban imposed upon him by the FA for criticising the referee after his side’s 3-1 home defeat by Southampton last month.
The suspension relating to his behaviour at West Ham is a separate sanction.
The punishment adds to the pile of problems facing Mourinho, whose position is reported to be in jeopardy after his side fell to 15th place in the Premier League following a return of six defeats in 11 matches.
