Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will be present on the touchline for his side’s Premier League clash against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge this weekend, even if he does accept the charge for misconduct on Thursday. It seems that there could be action against the Portuguese manager for his alleged verbal abuse on referee Jon Moss during the Blues’ 2-1 defeat at Upton Park against West Ham last Saturday.
The former Real Madrid coach has until 6pm on Thursday to respond to the charge, which is something new and totally unrelated to the £50,000 fine and suspended stadium ban he was given previously for criticizing referee Robert Madley publicly.
Mourinho had stated that referees are ‘afraid to give Chelsea decisions’, after his side suffered a home defeat against Southampton earlier this month.
With things not getting an better and a lot of pressure on him, it seems that the game against the Reds could be a must win match, if he intends to stay in west London.
What happens next remains to be seen later today.
