BREAKING NEWS: Mourinho fined and given suspended one-game stadium ban

Jose Mourinho has been fined £50,000 and handed a suspended one-match stadium ban following his comments after Chelsea’s defeat to Southampton on October 3, the Football Association has confirmed.

Mourinho was left incensed at the failure to award a penalty to his side when Radamel Falcao was brought down by Saints goalkeeper Martin Stekelenburg, which led to the Colombia striker receiving a booking for simulation.

The Portuguese coach subsequently claimed that officials were “afraid” to award spot-kicks to Chelsea and told the FA “it would not be a problem” should they sanction him for his comments.

English football’s governing body announced their ruling on Wednesday, dishing out a fine and the stadium ban, which is suspended for 12 months.

“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,” read an FA statement.

“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.”
