Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was left fuming at the prosect of losing Cesc Fabregas for the beginning of next season following his dismissal in a 3-0 Premier League defeat at West Brom on Monday.
With the hosts 1-0 up, Spain midfielder Fabregas was shown a straight red card by referee Mike Jones after firing the ball into a crowd of players during a break in play, striking Chris Brunt on the head.
Fabregas is now facing a three-match ban, ruling him out of the opening fixtures of next season.
“Three-game bans for this? Jesus Christ,” raged Mourinho. “Three-game bans for this? Okay.
“Of course it’s harsh. If we get three games with this… Imagine … Jesus.”
Champions Chelsea end their season with a home clash against Sunderland on Sunday.
