Jose Mourinho fined over Aston Villa conduct

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been fined £8,000 and warned about his future conduct by the Football Association after his sending-off at Aston Villa last month.

Mourinho asked for a personal hearing after being charged with improper conduct after he was sent to the stands by referee Chris Foy during his side's 1-0 loss at Villa Park.

A FA statement said: "Mourinho denied a breach of FA rule E3 in that his behaviour in re-entering the field of play and approaching the match referee (Foy) in an attempt to speak to him, in or around the 90th minute of the game against Aston Villa on March 15, 2014, amounted to improper conduct.

"However, the charge was found proven at a personal hearing on Wednesday, April 9."

Chelsea progressed to the semi-finals of the Champions League earlier this week after beating Paris Saint-Germain.
