Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has said he will appeal against the Football Association's ?50,000 fine and one-match suspended stadium ban.
Mourinho was sanctioned for comments made following the October 3 loss to Southampton in which he said referee Robert Madeley was "afraid" to give Chelsea a penalty.
Mourinho on Friday confirmed he had received the FA's written reasons and will appeal.
"The moment we got the written reasons and we decided to appeal is the moment to stop with my opinions and not to add anything more," Mourinho said.
