Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho has been charged with misconduct by the English Football Association (FA), for his half-time rant at referee Jonathan Moss, and his refusal to leave match officials’ room during defeat to West Ham.
Chelsea first-team coach Silvino Louro has also been charged with misconduct, and both clubs have been charged with failing to control their players.
Mourinho, who is currently appealing against a £50,000 fine and suspended one-match stadium ban for post-match comments he made following Chelsea’s 3-1 loss to Southampton on October 3rd, was sent to the stands by referee Jonathan Moss during half-time at West Ham on Saturday.
The 52 year old, has until 6pm on Thursday to respond to the charge. A commission will then be convened and if the charge is proven, the level of sanction to be applied will be determined.
A statement from the FA read: “Jose Mourinho has been charged with misconduct in relation to his language and/or behaviour towards the match officials in or around the dressing room area at half-time.
“Chelsea coach Silvino Louro has also been charged with misconduct in relation to his behaviour which led to his 45th minute dismissal from the technical area.
“West Ham have been charged for failing to control their players in the 44th minute of the game and Chelsea have also been charged with the same offence for an alleged breach in the 45th minute of the game.
“All parties have until 6pm on Thursday [Oct. 29, 2015] to reply.”
Chelsea’s next match is a Capital One Cup tie away to Stoke City on Tuesday night before the crucial tie against rivals Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
