Jose Mourinho denies misconduct charge

Clive Brunskill

Surprise surprise. Jose Mourinho will contest the FA's charge of improper conduct following his post-match comments at Sunderland:

Mourinho was one of three Chelsea men charged in the wake of that debacle, which still rankles despite our rather splendid outing at Liverpool on Sunday. Ramires has already admitted violent conduct after rather stupidly striking out at Sebastian Larsson, and Rui Faria has now admitted two charges of misconduct because he was sent out to take two charges of misconduct by Mourinho.

But Jose's case is a little different, because he spent his press conference praising (sarcastically, of course), the performance of both Mike Dean and referee chief Mike Riley. Granted, he was being a big old troll and we all know what he meant, but considering how difficult it is to actually prove anything here I'd imagine there's a decent change he gets let off.

So this should be fun.
