Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been fined £8,000 (€9,684) and warned as to his future conduct over an incident during last month’s match against Aston Villa, the English FA has announced.

Mourinho requested a personal hearing following an improper conduct charge after he was sent to the stands by referee Chris Foy towards the end of a 1-0 loss at Villa Park.

An FA statement read: “Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been fined £8,000 ((€9,684) and warned as to his future conduct following an independent regulatory commission hearing. “

Mourinho denied a breach of FA rule E3 in that his behaviour in re-entering the field of play and approaching the match referee (Foy) in an attempt to speak to him, in or around the 90th minute of the game against Aston Villa on March 15, 2014, amounted to improper conduct. “

However, the charge was found proven at a personal hearing on Wednesday, April 9th.”
