Jose Mourinho and Ramires charged by FA following Chelsea defeat to Sunderland
The Special One was furious after suffering his first home league defeat as Chelsea manager
Wednesday 23 April 2014
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, his assistant Rui Faria and midfielder Ramires have been charged by the Football Association for their actions in last Saturday's controversial loss to Sunderland.
The relegation-threatened Black Cats won the Premier League contest 2-1, ending Mourinho's 77-match unbeaten home league run with the Blues.
Mourinho could not hide his anger afterwards behind a sarcastic appraisal of the officials, while Faria was dismissed for angrily confronting the match officials.
Ramires avoided punishment at the time of his flailing arm striking Sebastian Larsson but now faces a retrospective punishment which could prematurely end his domestic season.
