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!
