UEFA Begins Disciplinary Action Against Jose Mourinho

UEFA Begins Disciplinary Action Against Jose Mourinho

Anthony Tailor and Jose Mourinho

European football governing body, UEFA, has officially begun disciplinary proceedings against AS Roma coach Jose Mourinho following his use of insulting and abusive language directed towards the referee during the Europa League final against Sevilla.

The incident occurred after the match, which ended in a penalty shootout victory for Sevilla, and was captured on film.

Mourinho was caught on camera repeatedly referring to English referee Anthony Taylor as a "disgrace" in a profanity-laced tirade that took place in the stadium car park in Budapest.

The verbal attack has led to Mourinho facing charges for his conduct, which is considered a breach of UEFA's disciplinary regulations.

Furthermore, AS Roma itself will also face charges as a result of their supporters' behaviour during the match. The fans were reported to have thrown objects, lit fireworks, and caused disturbances within the crowd. Similar charges have been pressed against Sevilla for their fans' involvement in the incidents.

During the heated final, referee Anthony Taylor booked a total of 13 players, seven of whom belonged to the AS Roma squad. The match was marred by numerous fouls, leading to frequent delays. Following the game, Taylor became the target of angry Roma supporters at Budapest Airport, where he was confronted with hostility.

The Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL), the body representing referees, expressed its outrage at the treatment of Anthony Taylor and his family. In a statement, they condemned the "unjustified and abhorrent abuse" directed towards Taylor as he tried to make his way home after refereeing the Europa League final.

The UEFA disciplinary proceedings will further investigate the matter, and both Mourinho and AS Roma could face sanctions if found guilty.
