MourinhoChelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been fined £25,000 by the Football Association for bringing the game into disrepute.
The charge relates to comments he made following the Blues’ 1-1 draw with Southampton at St Mary’s on 28 December.
Mourinho was angered after Cesc Fabregas was booked for simulation leading the Chelsea boss to claim there was a ‘campaign’ against his side.
“The Independent Regulatory Commission found the comments were a breach of FA Rule E3 in that they were improper and brought the game into disrepute,” read a statement on the FA website.
“The Commission did not, however, find that the comments implied bias on the part of a referee or referees.
“Mr Mourinho, who had requested a non-personal hearing, was also warned as to his future conduct.”
