Referee: Mourinho Swore At Me Over Penalty Claim, Goal Line Technology

The Football Association has published details of the moment Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho approached referee Jon Moss at half-time during the Premier League match against West Ham United on 24 October.

Mourinho felt Chelsea should have had a penalty and even questioned the goal line technology that ruled out what he thought should have been a goal for his team.


Mourinho was consequently given a one-match stadium suspension with immediate effect and fined £40,000 for his actions.

In his report, referee Moss’s wrote:


“When myself and my colleagues left the field of play at half-time, as we entered the tunnel area to get to our dressing room, Mr Mourinho the Chelsea manager was waiting for us clearly agitated and began aggressively asking about first-half decisions. Rather than publicly speak to him I asked him to step into the entrance of my dressing room escorted by Simon Sutton, the West Ham United security manager.
“Mr Mourinho asked me about a tackle, an offside and a goal line clearance. I gave him brief answers to his questions. After this I asked him to leave the dressing room area. He refused. I asked him again. After he refused again I asked Mr Sutton to escort him from the room.
“At this point Mr Mourinho became very aggressive and animated. He shouted that you [expletive] referees are weak…Wenger is right about you…you are [expletive] weak. I advised Mr Mourinho not to take his position in the technical area for the second half.”
