Chelsea fans are ready to prove their support for Jose Mourinho by organising a collection to pay his £8,000 fine for improper conduct across their next two matches, according to The Metro.
Mourinho was handed a fine and warning about his future behaviour by the Football Association following a personal hearing on Wednesday, for his conduct during and after a 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa last month.
The Blues boss can easily afford the small fine when you consider he earns a reported salary of £10m per season, but as a show of support for their inspirational leader Chelsea supporters want to help with the cost.
Chelsea supporters will have buckets at the ready before games against Swansea City and Sunderland, although Mourinho is unlikely to let fans actually pay such a paltry fine.
Despite the distraction of being punished for comments and a public confrontation of referee Chris Foy at Villa Park it's been a brilliant week for Mourinho, with Chelsea clawing back a two-goal deficit to knock Paris Saint-Germain out of the Champions League and advance to the semi-finals.
Chelsea must now turn their attention to keeping alive Premier League title hopes and the dream of a double, with this weekend's fixtures providing the perfect opportunity to close ground on Manchester City and Liverpool.
Those two direct title rivals meet at Anfield in a Sunday afternoon blockbuster, with Chelsea facing Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium soon after in a bid to end a worrying run of back-to-back domestic defeats on the road.
