Jose Mourinho is once again fined by the English FA due to the comments made towards referees Mike Dean and Mike Riley after he saw his team lose 2-1 to Sunderland, Sky Sports reports.
The Chelsea boss seemed to have given sarcastic comments towards the two match officials when Mourinho’s 78 game unbeaten home record was shattered by the then relegation strugglers.
This isn’t the first time the Portuguese manager was fined, having also been charged for his conduct towards referee Chris Foy after the Blues were beaten by Aston Villa back in March.
His initial statement after the match against the Black Cats was: “What they are doing during the whole season is fantastic, especially in the last couple of months, especially in matches involving the teams that were in the title race, it’s absolutely fantastic.”
The FA released a statement: “Following an independent regulatory commission hearing, Jose Mourinho has been fined £10,000 in relation to comments he made after Chelsea’s game against Sunderland on April 19, 2014.
“While the commission did not find that Mourinho’s post-match comments called into question the integrity of the referee appointed to the above fixture and/or the integrity of Mike Riley, general manager of the Professional Game Match Officials Limited, they did find that the comments brought the game into disrepute and the charge for improper conduct was found proven.”
In regards to his latest punishment, the Special One accused the FA of singling him out and that the association had no sense of humour.
“Every time I speak there is a consequence,” Mourinho said. “Even if I say that a referee was amazing that was a reason to be with a charge.
“I can’t say the truth. I don’t feel free at all. If you want a better press conference, speak with the FA.”
