It`s an £8,000 Fine
Having been charged by the Football Association, with improper conduct, Jose Mourinho didn`t get punished as badly as we thought he might.
Forced to sit in the stand, after a vocal fracas with the referee, Anthony Taylor, Jose didn`t appeal against the charge and was subsequently fined £8,000.
More importantly, the punishment means that Jose can be in the dg-out this Sunday when we welcome Manchester City to Stamford Bridge,
Speaking about the punishment, Jose is quoted as having remarked,
'I accept the fine and against Manchester City I can work."
'What the referee wrote is true. I wasn't aggressive, I wasn't offensive, I just had a disagreement.'
'[Referee Taylor] is honest and fair [in the report].'
'What he writes is exactly what happened and exactly why I didn't understand why I went to the stands. And it's exactly why the punishment is just a fine.'
A result all round then I`d say!
