José Mourinho has been charged by UEFA for insulting and abusive language toward referee Anthony Taylor in the Europa League final
Jose Mourinho, the coach of Roma, has been reprimanded by Uefa for using derogatory language following the Europa League final on Wednesday, May 31.
The accusation refers to a post-game altercation in which Mourinho, 60, yelled obscenities at English referee Anthony Taylor.
Taylor had issued a caution to the Portuguese in Budapest, where Sevilla defeated Roma on penalties following a 1-1 draw.
Additionally, both teams are being investigated for the actions of their supporters and athletes. Sevilla and Roma are accused of illegal team conduct, lighting pyrotechnics, and throwing objects.
European side Invasion of the playing field is an additional charge against Sevilla, and acts of vandalism and crowd disruptions are further charges against Roma.
Mourinho criticised Taylor in his news conference and was later captured confronting the Englishman and other officials as they boarded a minibus in the car park under the stadium.
The former Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham boss repeatedly swore and twice shouted about a “disgrace”, before talking further in Italian. Twitter feed below: Taylor and his family were shouted at by angry fans in Budapest Airport.
