REVEALED: Jose Mourinho’s expletive-ridden rant that got him banned


Ben Kenyon

The FA have released the reasons for the one-match stadium ban that will see Jose Mourinho miss Chelsea’s trip to Stoke on Saturday – as well as shell out a £40,000 fine.

Referee Jonathan Moss submitted his written reasons for Mourinho to be banned following his behaviour towards match officials during West Ham’s victory over Chelsea.

Moss claims Mourinho screamed at him at half-time: “You f**king referees are weak…Wenger is right about you…you are f**king weak.”

In his report to the Independent Regulatory Commission he explained the incident in full.

When myself and my colleagues left the field of play at half time, as we entered the tunnel area to get to our dressing room, Mr Mourinho the Chelsea Manager was waiting for us clearly agitated and began aggressively asking about first half decisions.

Rather than publically speak to him I asked him to step into the entrance of my dressing room escorted by Simon Sutton, the West Ham United Security Manager.

Mr Mourinho asked me about a tackle, an offside and a goal line clearance. I gave him brief answers to his questions. After this I asked him to leave the dressing room area. He refused.

I asked him again. After he refused again I asked Mr Sutton to escort him from the room. At this point Mr Mourinho became very aggressive and animated.

He shouted that you f**king referees are weak…Wenger is right about you…you are f**king weak. I advised Mr Mourinho not to take his position in the technical area for the second half due to his actions.

After reading this, we’re not really surprised that Mourinho didn’t appeal his punishment.
