The Football Association have released their reasons as to why Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was given a £40,000 fine and a one-game stadium ban following the 2-1 defeat at West Ham United.

It had been reported that the Portuguese boss had made a comment about Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger - that also involved some expletives - resulting in the Special One being sent to the stands.

Now, the FA, on their official website, have confirmed what the Blues boss said to referee Jon Moss, and he did indeed reference the Gunners manager.

The statement, which includes Moss' post-match report, says Mourinho refused to leave the official's dressing room upon request after the referee had answered his questions.

Moss then asked the West Ham security officer to escort Mourinho out of the dressing room.

This is when the three-time Premier League winning manager became agitated and shouted: "You f****** referees are weak…Wenger is right about you…you are f****** weak."

The FA said they had taken the Special One's previous history with sanctions into account before deciding that a stadium ban was the correct course of action.

They claimed a touchline ban would have given him the platform to commit a similar offence while still serving his suspension. 

"We considered a stadium ban to be the appropriate sporting sanction for the offence committed by Mr. Mourinho," the report read.

The 52-year-old will not be on the touchline for Chelsea's game with Stoke City on Saturday. 

Having secured a nervy 2-1 win over Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday night, the Blues will be hoping to finally turn around their league form.

Sitting 15th in the table, they can ill afford to lose another game as they already trail fourth-place Manchester United by ten points.
