Chelsea assistant manager Rui Faria has received a six-game stadium ban on Thursday.

The Portuguese was dismissed from the Chelsea bench in the Blues' defeat to Sunderland on 19 April which ended Jose Mourinho's run of 77 home games without losses.

Faria pleaded guilty to two charges of improper conduct and additionally received a £30,000 fine.

The first charge was for "abusive and/or insulting words towards the fourth official" and the second charge stated that "his behaviour following the match referee’s request that he leave the technical area amounted to improper conduct," a statement on the FA website read.

A statement on the FA website read: "Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, Chelsea coach Rui Faria has been given a six-match stadium ban with immediate effect, subject to any appeal, after he admitted two breaches of FA Rules.

"The first breach was that Faria used abusive and/or insulting words towards the fourth official during Chelsea’s game against Sunderland on 19 April 2014.

"The second breach was that his behaviour following the match referee’s request that he leave the technical area amounted to improper conduct.

Faria, who requested a non-personal hearing, was also fined £30,000 and warned as to his future conduct."

A few days earlier, Chelsea midfielder Ramires had received a four-match ban for slapping Sunderland player Sebastian Larsson in the face.

The 38-year-old has been working as a fitness coach with Jose Mourinho since 2001 and has followed Mourinho to all his clubs.
