Ianni, 32, apologized to Mourinho after the match at the behest of Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri, and the Football Association has now fined him approximately $7700.

Mourinho said Monday that Ianni deserved a second chance. From the BBC:

“I hope everybody does the same as I did and do not disturb the career of a great guy,” Mourinho said. “Probably someone with great potential. I’m not happy at all with more than that.”
