Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is fined £8,000 by the FA after admitting a charge of improper conduct during his side's victory over Cardiff City.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been fined £8,000 by the Football Association for admitting a charge of improper conduct.

The Portuguese coach was charged by the governing body for remonstrating with referee Anthony Taylor during the Blues' 4-1 win over Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge last Saturday.

The ex-Real Madrid boss was sent to the stands after complaining of the Welsh side's time-wasting throughout the match following Taylor's warning to a Chelsea player that he needed to hurry up while taking a throw-in.

A statement from the FA said: "Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been fined £8,000 after he admitted a breach of FA Rule E3 in that his behaviour in or around the 69th minute of his side's game against Cardiff City on 19 October 2013 amounted to improper conduct. The fine is the standard penalty for the offence."

The FA have decided not to take any further action against Mourinho.
