London - Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been hit with a one-match stadium ban and a £40,000 fine after admitting to a charge of misconduct, the Football Association announced on Monday.
The charge related to Mourinho's conduct towards referee Jon Moss during Chelsea's recent 2-1 loss at West Ham United, which saw him sent to the stands, and means he will miss Saturday's game at Stoke City.
"Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today, Jose Mourinho has been given a one-match stadium suspension with immediate effect and fined £40,000," the FA said in a statement.
"The Chelsea manager admitted an FA charge of misconduct regarding his language and/or behaviour towards the match officials in or around the dressing room area during half-time of the game against West Ham United on 24 October 2015."
