Blues boss Jose Mourinho was last night charged of miss conduct by the Premier Leagues governing body the Football Association for his halftime rant at referee Jon Moss during the 2-1 loss to West Ham at Upton Park.
With Chelsea struggling so far this season in the Premier League, the last thing owner Roman Abrahamic wants is for the clubs sponsors to start worrying about their image being tarnished by the Portuguese manager’s behaviour as this latest charge adds yet another black mark to the clubs standing.
The club is currently experiencing their worst ever start to a season having lost five of their opening ten matches, and with Brendan Rodgers and Tim Sherwood already being fired for their underperforming teams performances, many people are saying that Mourinho’s future at the club could be in jeopardy should they lose at home to Liverpool on Saturday.
We are not sure yet but it is possible that this latest ban on the Chelsea manager could come into force before the Liverpool match, meaning that Mourinho would have to watch the game from the stands and not the side-lines.
According to the referee’s report Mourinho swore at him during the halftime interval and refused to leave the officials dressing room when asked to do so.
Chelsea now has until 6pm on Thursday to appeal the ruling, before a fine, ban or both are enforced.
