Mourinho charged by UEFA, banned from four matches



Roma manager, Jose Mourinho, has been banned from four matches by UEFA for hurling abusive language at referee Anthony Taylor during the Europa League final.

Video footage on social media showed Mourinho after the match accosting Taylor and his team in the car park, where he labeled their performance a “disgrace.”

The former Manchester United and Chelsea boss extended his criticism of the referee to the post-match conference where he called out the officials again.

Taylor and his family were also harassed by Roma supporters as they made their way home from the final.

Sevilla won on penalties to condemn Mourinho to his first defeat in a European final after an ill-tempered match that saw British referee Taylor dish out 14 yellow cards, the most ever in a Europa League game, and play almost 30 minutes of stoppage time in total.
