Jose Mourinho has been handed a one-match ban and fines totalling £58,000 after being hit with two Football Association misconduct charges in the space of a week.

Here, Press Association Sport looks at Mourinho's disciplinary record since the start of his second spell at Chelsea and during his United reign.

:: CARDIFF DISMISSAL (October 19, 2013)

Sent to the stands during a 4-1 win over Cardiff by referee Anthony Taylor.

Disciplined: Charge of improper conduct accepted. Fine of £8,000.

:: TOUCHLINE TICKING-OFF (March 15, 2014)

Dismissed by referee Chris Foy during an ill-tempered Chelsea loss at Aston Villa.

Disciplined: Contested a charge of improper conduct, unsuccessfully. Fined £8,000 and warned over future conduct.


Following his first home Premier League loss as Chelsea boss, Sunderland ending Mourinho's 77-game unbeaten Stamford Bridge run, he made a sarcastic appraisal of referee Mike Dean and referees' chief Mike Riley.

Disciplined: Failed in a challenge over charges and was fined £10,000.

:: SAINTS AND A SINNER (December 28, 2014)

Complained of a "clear campaign" against Chelsea after Cesc Fabregas was denied a penalty and instead booked in a 1-1 draw at Southampton.

Disciplined: Fined £25,000 after unsuccessfully contesting improper conduct charge.

:: ANOTHER SAINTLY EPISODE (October 3, 2015)

Criticised referee Robert Madley following a 3-1 loss to Southampton, saying referees were "afraid" to give Chelsea penalties and told officials to "be honest with us".

Disciplined: Judged to have implied bias, fined £50,000 and given a suspended one-match stadium ban. Had an appeal rejected.

:: HAMMERED (October 24, 2015)

After Chelsea imploded late in the first half, Mourinho was sent to the stands at West Ham for a half-time "discussion" with referee Jonathan Moss.

Disciplined: Handed one-match stadium suspension with immediate effect and fined £40,000 after admitting FA charge of misconduct. Opted not to appeal and missed a match at Stoke.

:: REFEREE REFERENCE (October 27, 2016)

Charged with misconduct after commenting about referee Taylor prior to Manchester United's goalless draw at Liverpool.

Disciplined: Mourinho accepted his comments constituted improper conduct but denied they brought the game into disrepute - although the FA ruled otherwise. Fined £50,000 and warned as to future conduct.

:: CLARETS CONFUSION (October 29, 2016)

Mourinho was sent to the stands for the second half against Burnley by referee Mark Clattenburg after allegedly using ''abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official'' in the tunnel at half-time.

Disciplined: Mourinho admitted the charge and was given a one-match touchline ban and a fine of £8,000.
