Mour­inho awaits fate af­ter Up­ton Park dis­missal

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Chelsea man­ager Jose Mour­inho will learn in the com­ing days if he faces pun­ish­ment for be­ing sent to the stands dur­ing his side’s 2-1 de­feat at West Ham United.

Mour­inho has com­plained over the last few months that he feels there is a vendetta against him and his team as far as match of­fi­cials are con­cerned.

The Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion has al­ready taken ac­tion against him for com­ments made to the me­dia on that sub­ject, im­pos­ing a £50 000 ($76 570, 69 500 eu­ros) fine and a sus­pended 12-month sta­dium ban ear­lier this month.

The sta­dium ban will come into force if he breaches FA rule E3, which obliges man­agers to “act in the best in­ter­ests of the game” and “not act in any man­ner which is im­proper or brings the game into dis­re­pute”, be­fore Oc­to­ber 16 next year.

Mour­inho en­sured he can­not be pun­ished for any me­dia com­ments by re­fus­ing to speak af­ter Satur­day’s match, which was de­cided by Andy Car­roll’s late win­ner and also fea­tured a red card for Chelsea mid­fielder Ne­manja Matic.

But he may have to ex­plain his part in referee Jon Moss’s de­ci­sion to ban­ish him to the stands at half­time, a fate that had al­ready be­fallen first­team coach Sil­vino Louro dur­ing the first half.

Moss’s re­port will be sent to the FA in the next few days.
