Following the English FA’s decision to fine and suspend Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, he revealed on Friday that, he will appeal the £50,000 FA fine and one-match stadium suspension ban, for his comments after his team’s defeat to Southampton.
Speaking during his Friday press conference, ahead of this weekend’s clash against Aston Villa he said: “I think at the moment, we have got the written reasons and I decided to appeal. So it’s the moment to stop with my opinions and not say anything more than I did already. I was very objective in my sadness facing the situation,” he said.
Before then, Mourinho claimed at the launch of his new book, that “every word I say is a big risk for me. I am happy that I don’t have an electronic tag. I think it’s not far from [that].
“I also think that £50,000 in the world where we live today is an absolute disgrace. And I also think that the possibility of getting a stadium ban is also something absolutely astonishing.”
When he was asked if he might have caused himself further problems with those remarks, he said: “I have to be honest with myself, that’s the most important thing.”
Talking about injuries ahead of the Villa clash, he siad there are 4 replacements for injured Ivanovic; Azpilicueta, Ramires, Zouma and Ola Aina.
