Mourinho loses appeal against FA charge

Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, has had his appeal against a £50,000 fine and a suspended one-game stadium ban dismissed by the Football Association.

The 52-year-old was sanctioned for implying match officials were biased against the Barclays Premier League champions in comments made following the October 3 loss to Southampton.

It was a charge he rejected, but his appeal was thrown out, the FA announced on Thursday.

“An appeal board has dismissed the appeal from Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho in relation to a decision made by an independent regulatory commission,” a statement from the FA read.

“The appeal board has upheld the original sanction and therefore it remains that 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 October 13, 2016.”

The Portuguese stadium ban will be invoked if he is guilty of further misconduct relating to media comments.

He admitted another misconduct charge after being sent off against West Ham.

The 52-year-old has been given a one-match stadium ban with immediate effect and also fined £40,000 for speaking to referee Jon Moss at half-time during the 2-1 defeat by the Hammers.

He is set to miss this Saturday’s game against Stoke unless he appeals against the punishment.

The FA said that the two charges were regarded as different types of misconduct, so the latest charge, incurred after the 2-1 defeat at West Ham on October 24, would not trigger the suspended stadium ban received for his behaviour following the 3-1 loss at home to Southampton on October 3.

Chelsea are 15th in the Premier League after six losses in the opening 11 matches.

Wednesday night’s Champions League defeat of Dynamo Kiev was Chelsea’s second win in six matches.
