And the laundry list of FA rulings against The Special one continue...
The Football Association has fined Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho £8,000 and warned him about further managerial misconduct on the sidelines.
This is all coming as a result of Mourinho's antics in the closing moments of his side's 1-0 loss at Villa Park last month.
Chelsea midfielder Ramires was given a straight red after he stamped on Aston Villa's Karim El Ahmadi in front of both benches, and Mourinho was one of the first men on the pitch to give referee Chris Foy an idea of what he thought of Ramires' dismissal.
Mourinho was told to head to the dressing rooms, and later criticised the referee for his handling of the match, which he surprisingly wasn't fined for.
The FA stated that Mourinho pleaded "not-guilty" to breaching rule E3, but was in fact later found guilty during a personal meeting with the FA.
Chelsea supporters have reportedly started a campaign to raise the money for Mourinho so that the millionaire manager won't have to dish out the cash himself.
Dave Johnstone, a spokesperson for Chelsea fanzine "cfcuk", released this statement regarding the matter: "He’s not hard up but we support Jose Mourinho and we don’t think he should’ve been fined."
The supporters are to start collecting this Sunday with fans traveling to Swansea City for a Premier League clash.
With the Premier League title race coming to a boil and his Chelsea side narrowly advancing to the Champions League semi-finals due to some late-match Demba Ba heroics, you can be almost certain that Mourinho will find a way to "toe the line" in terms of right and wrong in the last few weeks of club football.
