Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been charged with violent conduct by the English Football Association after Chelsea’s loss to West Ham United.
Chelsea fell 2-1 on the road to West Ham on Saturday. Mourinho got sent to the stands after remarks made to the referee at halftime.
Mourinho was upset with the sending off of Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic just before the halftime whistle. Chelsea assistant coach Silvino Louro was also ejected from the game.
The FA released the following statement on its website:
“Following the game between West Ham United and Chelsea on Saturday [24 October 2015], The FA has taken the following disciplinary action.
Jose Mourinho has been charged with misconduct in relation to his language and/or behaviour towards the match officials in or around the dressing room area at half-time.
Chelsea coach Silvino Louro has also been charged with misconduct in relation to his behaviour which led to his 45th minute dismissal from the technical area.
West Ham have been charged for failing to control their players in the 44th minute of the game and Chelsea have also been charged with the same offence for an alleged breach in the 45th minute of the game.
All parties have until 6pm on Thursday [29 October 2015] to reply.”
Mourinho is already in trouble with the FA after remarks he made after a game earlier in the month. He was handed a £50,000 fine and a suspended one-match stadium ban for remarks made in the media after Chelsea’s loss to Southampton on Oct. 3. Mourinho is appealing that verdict.
