Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has labeled his Football Association fine is a “disgrace” after being handed a one match stadium ban and a fine of £50,000.
Mourinho in an interview had claimed officials were “afraid” to award his team penalties after referee Robert Madley overruled Falcao’s appeal for a penalty in a 3-1 loss to Southampton.
The FA on Wednesday announced that the Chelsea boss who in the same interview said he was not bothered about facing the wrath of the FA had also been given a suspended one-match stadium ban.
“I’m happy I don’t have an electronic tag.
“£50,000 is a disgrace. The possibility of getting a stadium ban is astonishing. Mourinho told BBC Sports.
When asked if his relationship with English football’s governing body could be fixed, he said: “It’s not my relationship with the FA, it’s their relationship towards me.
“You should analyze what’s happening with me, compare it with other managers. Do you think a word is comparable with a push in the eyes of everyone?
“I can’t say anything because the next time I speak, seriously a stadium ban, then after an electronic tag.” Mourinho added.
In his recent run-ins with the FA, the self-acclaimed Special One was last month cleared by the FA of making discriminatory comments to former club doctor Eva Carneiro. He was also charged last season for claiming there was a “campaign” to influence referees’ decisions against his Chelsea side.
The 52-year old was also given a formal warning for comments before the Blues’ 2-0 win at Stoke on 22 December 2014.
Mourinho’s troops entertain out of form Aston Villa on Saturday, seeking a third Premier League win in nine games after a poor start to the season.
