Mourinho calls fine from FA ‘a disgrace,’ again hits out at Wenger

Jose Mourinho has attacked England’s Football Association for perceived inconsistencies in its disciplinary process and again hit out at Arsene Wenger without naming the Arsenal boss.

Mourinho was handed a one-match suspended stadium ban and fined £50,000 on Wednesday evening after accepting a misconduct charge from the Football Association for comments he made about officials in the wake of the 3-1 loss to Southampton on Oct. 3.

“I’m happy that I don’t have an electronic tag,” said the Chelsea boss, who was speaking at Waterstones Piccadilly to promote his book MOURINHO.

“£50,000 is a disgrace. The possibility of getting a stadium ban is astonishing.”

Mourinho felt aggrieved Wenger went unpunished for calling referee Mike Dean “weak” and “naive” following Arsenal’s defeat to Chelsea last month. Yet the Portuguese was sanctioned for his criticism of Robert Madeley, the official in the loss to Saints.

Wenger also escaped punishment for pushing Mourinho in the Stamford Bridge technical area in Oct. 2014, something which still grates with the Chelsea boss.

“The difference between afraid and weak and naive is £10,000 and one-match stadium ban,” said Mourinho, who will be banned from the stadium if he speaks out of turn again in the next 12 months.

“Afraid costs £50,000. Weak and naive – you can do it.”

In a clear reference to Wenger, Mourinho added: “We can push people in the technical area.”
