Jose Mourinho, Chelsea and West Ham up on FA charges

Jose Mourinho, Silvio Louro, Chelsea and West Ham have all been charged by the Football Association in the wake of Saturday’s London derby.

The Chelsea manager’s charge is “in relation to his language and/or behaviour towards the match officials in or around the dressing room area at half-time.”

Mourinho was sent to the stands after a half-time altercation with referee Jon Moss, who sent off Nemanja Matic in the 44th minute and then dismissed Chelsea coach Louro for his reaction to the red card.

Mourinho was only this month fined £50,000 and given a suspended stadium ban by the FA, although the latest misconduct charge is not for the same offence of criticising referees.

Louro’s red-card offence means he is also on an FA charge along with both clubs, who are accused of failing to control their players in the aftermath of the Matic sending-off.

All parties have until 6pm on Thursday to respond.
