Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has been given a one-match stadium ban following his antics against West Ham United late last month. 

As reported by the Guardian, the self-proclaimed 'Special One' has also been fined £40,000 after admitting a Football Association charge of misconduct.

The Blues chief was sent to the stands against the Hammers after a dispute at half-time with referee Jon Moss. The official had previously ruled out a Cesc Fabregas goal for offside and went on to send Nemanja Matic off at Upton Park.

Jose struggles 

Mourinho will now miss the Blues' Premier League fixture against Stoke City on Saturday, but, according to the same report, he could yet appeal the decision. 

Things are going from bad to worse for Mourinho, who needs his side to get back on track sooner rather than later. 

With the west London outfit languishing in 15th place in the Premier League table, the Blues must find some form immediately. On Saturday, however, they are going to have to produce the goods without their leader. 

What do you make of the ban? Have your say below!
