UEFA start disciplinary proceedings against Mourinho – punishment may be very severe

UEFA has decided to open disciplinary proceedings following the Europa League final in accordance with Article 55 of the Disciplinary Regulations, including one against Jose Mourinho for insulting the refereeing team in the stadium parking lot.

At the end of the match, the Roma coach shouted at referee Anthony Taylor in the parking lot of the Puskas Arena Stadium in Budapest: “You’re a f***ing disgrace, you’re a f***ing disgrace!”. Words that will be investigated by UEFA.

Earlier, Mourinho had criticized Taylor‘s performance to some media.

“The referee looked Spanish, so many yellow cards,” he went on to say.

“When he had to give Lamela a second one, he didn’t give it. And then he scored one of the penalties. It’s an injustice.”
