Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho has slammed the English Football Association over the stadium ban and £50,000 fine handed him following his remarks after the Southampton Premiership fixture.
English Premiership champion, Chelsea suffered a 3-1 home defeat at Stamford Bridge to Southampton on October 3, a match which Mourinho didn’t take lightly and went on his post-match conference criticizing the officiating.
Mourinho had said, “The referees are afraid to give decisions for Chelsea. If the FA wants to punish me, they can. They don’t punish others.”
These remarks made the FA hand him a one-match ban and the fine.
Mourinho reacted to the FA’s decision at the launch of his new book hitting out at the football body saying, “I’m happy that I don’t have an electronic tag!”
“£50,000 is a disgrace. The possibility of getting a stadium ban is astonishing,” he added.
Mourinho’s Chelsea currently lies in 16th position on the EPL log with only 8 points after 8 matches.
