Mourinho Opts to Contest FA Charges of Improper Conduct

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he will contest an FA charge for improper conduct following his sending off during his side’s 1-0 loss at Aston Villa.

Mourinho walked onto the pitch to speak with referee Chris Foy after Chelsea midfielder Ramires was shown a red card late in the encounter last Saturday.

“I have decided how I will respond and I don’t accept the charges,” Mourinho said in his press conference ahead of the Premier League top biller between his side and Arsenal this weekend.

The Portuguese boss is given until 18:00 GMT on Monday 24 March to respond to the Football Association (FA)Prem charges.

“I will speak to them privately now. For obvious reasons I don’t accept the charges,” he added.

Mourinho said after the match he wanted to speak to Foy about Villa’s already-substituted forward Gabriel Agbonlahor’s role during the melee.

The Saturday evening loss at Villa Park trimmed the league leaders’ lead to four points.
