Chelsea manager José Mourinho has been banned from driving for six months after he was caught speeding last year.

The Portuguese pleaded guilty to the offence at Staines Magistrates’ Court in Surrey on Wednesday, a court official said.

He was ordered to pay £910 in fines and court costs following the incident on the A3 in Esher, Surrey, on September 23rd last year, she added.

According to reports, Mourinho – who already had nine points on his licence – was caught on a speed camera doing 60mph in a 50mph zone, close to Chelsea’s training ground at Cobham.

The 52-year-old – who has previously managed Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Porto during a glittering career – was not required to attend the hearing, the court official said.
