Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has today been fined £8,000 and warned about his future conduct by the Football Association after being found guilty of improper conduct during last month's 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa.

Mourinho was sent off during stoppage time of Chelsea's shock 1-0 loss at Villa Park, after entering the field of play to confront referee Chris Foy following the late dismissal of Brazilian midfielder Ramires.

The Blues boss denied the charge and requested a personal hearing to decide his fate, with an independent regulatory commission considering the evidence on Wednesday before delivering a guilty verdict.

Despite being critical of Foy in his post-match interview Mourinho has escaped a touchline ban, but will have to be careful in his treatment of officials for the remainder of the campaign at minimum.

Mourinho was disappointed in Foy's decision to send off two Chelsea players during a match which ultimately may end up costing the Blues the title in a tight three-horse race for the Premier League, with Willian's dismissal for a second bookable offence in particular viewed as harsh.

Ramires can have little complaint about his red card though after lunging into a two-footed tackle on Karim El Ahmadi, a challenge which prompted Mourinho to confront Foy on the pitch and soon be sent to the stands.
