Awww! Sometimes one is tempted to believe that there is a campaign against Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho in football.lol. The FA Appeal Board has dismissed the Portuguese’s appeal over his £50,000 fine and one-match stadium ban.
The ex Real Madrid coach was punished for comments made after Chelsea’s 2-1 loss to West Ham.
The FA wrote on their official website. “An Appeal Board has dismissed the appeal from Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho in relation to a decision made by an Independent Regulatory Commission,”
“At the original commission hearing, Mr Mourinho was given a suspended one-match stadium ban and fined £50,000 after he admitted a breach of FA Rules in relation to post-match comments made following the game against Southampton on Saturday 3 October 2015.
“The Appeal Board has upheld the original sanction and therefore it remains that Mr Mourinho’s suspended stadium ban will be immediately invoked should he be found by an Independent Regulatory Commission to have committed a further breach of FA Rule E3 for any comment or statement to or through the media before 13 October 2016.”
