LONDON: Jose Mourinho was assailed by more trouble twice over after being inflicted with a new stadium ban amid reports that he is being sued personally by former Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro.
Mourinho was handed a one-match stadium ban with immediate effect and also fined £40,000 by the Football Association after admitting a misconduct charge over his language and behaviour in the defeat by West Ham on October 24.
Mourinho, 52, was sent to the stands after going to speak to referee Jon Moss in his room at half-time.
He will miss Chelsea’s league game at Stoke on Saturday, unless he appeals.
This stadium ban is separate to the suspended one he received along with a £50,000 fine for comments he made after the loss to Southampton on 3 October. The Portuguese described that fine as a “disgrace” and has appealed.
Mourinho’s assistant, Silvino Louro, was also charged by the FA after being dismissed during the match at West Ham in relation to his behaviour in the technical area.
In addition to his disciplinary problems with the FA, the Portuguese faces ongoing problems over his treatment of former Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro.
Carneiro was dropped from first-team duties after Mourinho said she was “naive” for treating Eden Hazard during the opening-day draw at home to Swansea.
She has since left Chelsea and Mourinho is the subject of individual legal action from Carneiro, who is also suing the Stamford Bridge club for constructive dismissal.
On the pitch, his side are 15th in the Premier League having lost six times in 11 games in defence of their Premier League crown.
The latest defeat was a 3-1 home loss to Liverpool that left the Blues 14 points behind leaders Manchester City.
