Jose Mourinho has been charged by the Football Association (FA) for misconduct during Chelsea’s Premier League clash with West Ham.
Coach Silvino Louro has also been charged with the same offence while both clubs face accusations of failing to control their players.
“Jose Mourinho has been charged with misconduct in relation to his language and/or behaviour towards the match officials in or around the dressing room area at half-time,” read an FA statement.
“Chelsea coach Silvino Louro has also been charged with misconduct in relation to his behaviour which led to his 45th minute dismissal from the technical area.
“West Ham have been charged for failing to control their players in the 44th minute of the game and Chelsea have also been charged with the same offence for an alleged breach in the 45th minute of the game.
“All parties have until 6pm on Thursday [29 October 2015] to reply.”
Chelsea boss Mourinho remains subject to a suspended stadium ban following comments relating to the match officials made after the 3-1 loss to Southampton at Stamford Bridge earlier this month.
However, that related to post-match media comments where he “alleged and/or implied bias” on the part of the officials, meaning this latest charge is unlikely to trigger the ban.
The Portuguese has since been critical of the FA punishment meted out to him – declaring on Friday he would not give the media “good and funny headlines” due to a “lack of respect”.
