Jose Mourinho will fight FA charge of improper conduct following sending-off in Chelsea's defeat to Aston Villa
Mourinho was sent to the stands but has said he does not accept the ruling of improper conduct
Friday 21 March 2014
Jose Mourinho will fight the Football Association’s charge of misconduct which followed last Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa.
The Chelsea manager was charged after going on the pitch in the aftermath of the incident which saw Ramires sent off, the second Chelsea player to be dismissed in a tempestuous game.
But rather than accept the charges levelled yesterday, and the £10,000 fine from the FA, Mourinho will contest them in writing next week. “I've decided,” Mourinho said this morning, “I don't accept the charges.”
“I have to wait until Monday and work out what I will do. For you, it's enough to know that, for obvious reasons, I don't accept the charges.”
