Mourinho blasts ban, happy to avoid ‘electronic tag’


LONDON: Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho launched a scathing attack on the Football Association after he was fined and given a one-match suspended stadium ban, claiming he was just happy he wasn’t forced to wear “an electronic tag.” Mourinho was fined £50,000 ($77,000, 68,000 euros) on Wednesday after accepting a misconduct charge from the English FA for comments he made about the officials in the wake of a 3-1 loss to Southampton in the Premier League on October 3. Following the news of the FA’s decision, Mourinho made it clear he is furious he has been punished, while Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has escaped any discipline for his own recent comments about officials.
