Under-fire Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been slapped with a one-match stadium ban by the Football Association of England as punishment for his misconduct during the Blues’ 2-1 defeat to West Ham.
The 52-year-old Portuguese coach whose has given two more matches by the Chelsea board to improve the performance of the team, is also fined £40,000 and will have to serve the suspension with immediate effect.
Jose Mourinho was charged last week for angrily confronting referee Jonathan Moss after Nemanja Matic was sent off during his side’s 2-1 defeat to West Ham United at Upton Park. Jose was suddenly sent to the stands by the referee alongside his assistant Silvino Louro.
An official statement on the official website of FA read : “The Chelsea manager admitted an FA charge of misconduct regarding his language and/or behavior 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.”
With regard to Chelsea coach Silvino Louro, who denied an FA misconduct charge in relation to the same game, The FA, having considered further representation, withdrew the formal charge of improper conduct but reminded him of his responsibilities.
The ban will put Jose Mourinho out for the clash against Stoke City on 7th November 2015, failing to win on the day may seal his fate.
