Mourinho Is Penalized By UEFA With A Four-game Ban For Referee Abuse

Jose Mourinho, the manager of Roma, has been given a four-game suspension by UEFA for using foul language toward referee Anthony Taylor during the Europa League final.

Following the game, footage posted on social media showed a furious Mourinho confronting Taylor and his squad in the parking lot and calling their performance a “disgrace.”

The former Manchester United and Chelsea boss would extend his criticism to the post-match conference, calling out the officials. 

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.

While Mourinho was individually charged, both clubs have also been charged with a number of offences by UEFA.
