Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been fined £8,000 and warned about his future conduct after being sent off in last month’s 1-0 defeat by Aston Villa.

Mourinho walked on to the Villa Park pitch to speak to referee Chris Foy after Chelsea’s Ramires was dismissed.

It’s about time the authorities took action against Mourinho, although the fine is nothing to the millionaire manager.

He should act as a role model - but he is anything but that from his bizarre press conferences to his touchline antics.
