JOSE Mourinho will not face any action from the English Football Association for his comments about referee Chris Foy.

The governing body has yet to come to a decision, however, on whether the Chelsea manager should face further action after he was sent to the stands by Foy towards the end of the match at Aston Villa last Saturday. Mourinho was strongly critical of Foy's performance following the 1-0 defeat, which also saw Willian and Ramires sent off, and suggested the official should not be appointed for future Chelsea games.

It is understood Mourinho's post-match comments did not cross the line which would see the Chelsea boss land a misconduct charge.

UWE STUNNED BY LATE DRAMA

Uwe Rosler admitted Wigan's incredible 3-3 draw against Yeovil at the DW Stadium contained the most dramatic finale he has ever witnessed.

After Nick Powell's second-half opener, the madness began when Ishamel Miller struck a quick brace to turn the match on its head.

Yet, amazingly, with two minutes to go Wigan were winning thanks to James McArthur's equaliser and Byron Webster's own goal.

However, in the fourth minute of stoppage time, Luke Ayling bundled home a last-gasp leveller from a corner in the final act of a riveting game.

"I have never seen more drama, no, that's the way it is," said Rosler.
