The Chelsea boss admitted to a breach of FA
rules following his comments in the wake of the
3-1 defeat to Southampton, and has been given
a suspended one-match punishment.

Jose Mourinho has been handed a suspended
one-match stadium ban, and a £50,000 fine, for
comments made after Chelsea's defeat to
Southampton, in which he criticised the officials
for not awarding his side a penalty.

Mourinho claimed that referees were "afraid to
give decisions to Chelsea" after seeing his side
beaten 3-1, and effectively dared the Football
Association to issue him with a punishment.

He said: "The result 1-1 is a huge penalty and
once more we don't get and a penalty is a
crucial moment in the game with the result at
1-1, and I repeat that if FA wants to punish me
they can punish me, they don't punish other
managers but they punish me, it's not a
problem for me."

Mourinho has now been given a suspended ban
after admitting to a charge of breaching FA
rules, with the governing body warning the
Portuguese that the suspension will be invoked
if he is punished for a similar breach again.
A statement from the FA read: "Jose Mourinho
has been given a suspended one-match
stadium ban and fined £50,000 after he
admitted a breach of FA Rules in relation to
post-match media comments

"The Chelsea manager was charged for
misconduct following the game against
Southampton on Saturday 3 October 2015.

"It was alleged his remarks constituted
improper conduct in that they alleged and/or
implied bias on the part of a match official or
match officials and/or brought the game into

"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."
