Mourinho fined for criticising refereeMarch 18th, 2009 - 8:38 pm ICT by IANS
Rome, March 18 (DPA) Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho was fined but not suspended following the dismissal he received at the weekend late in the Serie A game his side won 2-0 over guests Fiorentina.
A sports judge Tuesday fined the 46-year-old Portuguese $13,000 “for openly criticising the referee’s officiating, stepping out of his designated area”.
Mourinho had received a one-game ban for being sent off earlier this season.
Fiorentina were also fined 12,000 euros for their fans’ racist chants during the late Sunday game at the Giuseppe Meazza.
