Rebellious Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho, has been given an £8,000 fine and a warning over his behaviour during the Premier League game against Aston Villa in March.

The manager was sent to the stands for entering the field following the dismissal of his player Ramires, who was shown a straight red card after jumping on the leg of Villa's Karim El Ahmadi.

The challenge caused a wave of activity on the touchline, with a number of staff and players from both sides coming off of the bench and onto the field.

When Mourinho approached referee Chris Foy, he was immediately sent to the stands.

He later said: “I don't know why I was sent off. I asked, but the referee refused to speak to me” after the match.

The self-proclaimed 'Special One' was later charged with breaching rule E3, by entering the field of play and attempting to speak to the match referee.

Mourinho was quick to deny his crimes and openly criticised Chris Foy's handling of the situation, as well as the game as a whole, telling reporters that he thinks it would be for the best if Chelsea games were not put under the control of Foy again.

The Blues' boss could not get his head round his dismissal, or why it was only his who was dismissed, despite his opposition manager also entering the pitch.

Mourinho went on to request a personal hearing to discuss the issue, which was granted.

However, FA have released a statement which concludes 'the charge was found proven at a personal hearing on Wednesday 9 April'.
