Mourinho fined for going onto the pitch

7:43 am on 12 April 2014

The Chelsea football club's manager Jose Mourinho has been fined $15,000 and warned about his future conduct after being sent to the stands during last month's 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa.

The FA imposed the penalty after Mourinho went onto the pitch in an attempt to speak to the referee who had just red-carded a second Chelsea player.

Mourinho argued that all he wanted to do was talk to the referee who refused to speak to him and sent him off from the dugout.
