Mourinho fined, warned after Aston Villa reaction

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been fined £8,000 and given a further warning following his conduct after being sent off in the Aston Villa fixture last month where Chelsea lost 1-0.

After Ramires had been dismissed, Mourinho walked on to the pitch to speak with Chris Foy, the match referee.

Mourinho said, “I don’t know why I was sent off.

“I asked, but the referee refused to speak to me.”

Mourinho was very critical of Foy following the match in his comments to the press. The result reduced the Blues lead at the top of the table to four points.

Ramires saw red because of a two-footed tackle on Karim El Ahmadi. Mourinho claimed that he wanted to speak to Foy because he felt Ramires had been pushed by Gabriel Agbonlahor.
