Mourinho Charged By UEFA For Abusing Referee After Roma’s Europa League Final Loss

Roma coach Jose Mourinho has been charged by UEFA for using insulting or abusive language against an official after Wednesday’s Europa League final, BBC Sport reports.

The charge relates to an incident in a car park after the game, when Mourinho directed a foul-mouthed rant at English referee Anthony Taylor.
Sevilla defeated Roma 4-1 on penalties after 120 minutes of football ended 1-1.

The former Chelsea and Manchester United boss had been booked by Taylor in Budapest, where Sevilla beat Roma on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

Both clubs also face several charges over their fans’ and players’ conduct.

Sevilla and Roma have been charged with throwing of objects, lighting of fireworks and improper conduct of their team.

Spanish side Sevilla have an additional charge for invasion of the field of play, while Roma were also charged with acts of damage and crowd disturbances.

UEFA’s control, ethics and disciplinary body (CEDB) will decide on the matter in due course.
Mourinho criticised Taylor in his news conference and was later captured confronting the Englishman and other officials as they boarded a minibus in the car park under the stadium.

He repeatedly swore and twice shouted about a “disgrace”, before talking further in Italian.
Taylor and his family were then shouted at by angry fans in Budapest Airport.

During the game, the Manchester-based official, 44, was repeatedly called to the benches to take action as fourth official Michael Oliver struggled to keep control.

Taylor issued yellow cards to 13 players, the most bookings in a Europa League game. Seven of them were to Roma players, which was a record for a final.
