Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association in relation to media comments made after losing to Southampton on Saturday.

During the post match press conference the Portuguese manager has hinted that officials were afraid to give decisions in Chelsea’s favour. During the same conference he admitted that he is aware that the FA will probably charge him for those words.

The FA statement read:

”Jose Mourinho has been charged for misconduct in relation to media comments he made following Chelsea’s game against Southampton on Saturday 3 October 2015.”

”It is alleged his remarks constitute improper conduct in that they allege and/or imply bias on the part of a match official or match officials and/or bring the game into disrepute.”

”He has until 6pm on Thursday 8 October 2015 to respond to the charge.”
