Jose Mourinho Fined After Arguing a Call

jose_mourinho_2013 [1]The English Football Association has fined Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho £8,000 ($12,932) after admitting to a breach of the rules during last weekend’s 4-1 win over Cardiff City.

With about 20 minutes left of the match, Mourinho walked to the sideline and began yelling at referee Anthony Taylor after he asked Branislav Ivanovic to speed up taking a throw-in.

The Portuguese manager was apparently incensed at Taylor’s request after Cardiff, who took an early 1-0 lead, engaged in time-wasting of their own without repurcussion.

Taylor pointed Mourinho off the pitch, leading the 50 year old to take a seat in the stands next to a fan. Mourinho remained there for a short while before being told by an usher to exit the match, which he complied with.
