Chelsea mayhem: Mourinho sent to stands by referee

Jose Mourinho

Things kicked off, big time, at half time at Upton Park on Saturday.

With Chelsea losing 1-0, just before the interval they had a tight offside decision go against them when Cesc Fabregas scored, then Nemanja Matic was shown a second yellow card and sent off.

As Chelsea’s players remonstrated angrily with the officials who took some time to shown Matic a second yellow with Diafra Sakho going down softly, John Terry and Cesc Fabregas were both booked as the Blues lost the plot.

The camera then panned to the sidelines as Jose Mourinho was livid and laughed in disgust about the decision.

However, as half time arrived, Mourinho was invited into Jon Moss’s room and was sent to the stands by the referee where he watched the second half with a face like thunder.

There was some initial confusion around whether or not Mourinho had chosen to watch the second half from the stands, but ProSoccerTalk can confirm the referee sent him from the bench.

Chelsea went on to lose the game 2-1, their fifth defeat in 10 Premier League games so far this campaign as the reigning champs are languishing in 15th place on 11 points.

Looks like another FA charge could be heading Jose’s way. It just keeps getting worse for Chelsea and their under-fire manager who refused to speak to the media after the game.
