Jose Mourinho LOSES his appeal against UEFA’s four-match touchline ban after his X-rated ‘f****** disgrace’ rant at Anthony Taylor following Roma’s Europa League final defeat

  • Mourinho was banned after insulting referee Taylor at the end of last season 
  • Despite an appeal to UEFA, his four-match touchline suspension remains in place
  • As a result, he will miss the bulk of Roma’s Europa League group stage campaign 

Jose Mourinho has lost his appeal against a four-match UEFA touchline ban for insulting referee Anthony Taylor following Roma’s Europa League final defeat. 

Mourinho furiously confronted Taylor in the car park at Budapest’s Puskas Arena in the wake of his side’s loss against Sevilla and labelled the official a ‘f***ing disgrace’.

As a result, the Special One was hit with a four-match suspension, meaning he will miss the bulk of Roma’s group-stage campaign in next season’s competition.

And in a further blow, his appeal has been dismissed by UEFA’s Disciplinary Commission.

In a statement issued after tempers flared, the organisation’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary body meted out a series of punishments to both Mourinho and his club.

Indeed, Mourinho had been singled out for ‘directing abusive language’ at Taylor. 

Riled up by Roma’s penalty shootout loss, Mourinho had unleashed a scathing rant at the official – who is a regular fixture in the Premier League – during and after the final.

Speaking post-match, Mourinho accused Taylor of favouring Sevilla with a number of his controversial decisions and suggested the 44-year-old ‘seemed Spanish’.

Tension continued to spill over the day after the showdown, with Taylor and his family mobbed by a group of Roma thugs inside the terminal at Budapest Airport. 

More than a hundred hoodlums cornered Taylor as he and his party hurried through a crowd, with police officers even forced to step in and escort them to safety.

Security staff struggled to protect the group from the chanting mob, with vile language and various items – including a chair – hurled in their direction.

Eventually, they were shepherded to a private room before departing.

The Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL), the body overseeing refereeing in the UK, described the incident as ‘unjustified and abhorrent’. 

A statement said: ‘PGMOL is aware of videos circulating on social media showing Anthony Taylor and his family being harassed and abused at Budapest Airport. 

‘We are appalled at the unjustified and abhorrent abuse directed at Anthony and his family as he tries to make his way home from refereeing the UEFA Europa League final. We will continue to provide our full support to Anthony and his family.’

Roma were also fined €50,000 (£43,000) and banned from selling tickets to their away supporters for their first Europa League game next season as a result of their ‘lighting of fireworks, throwing of objects, acts of damage and crowd disturbances’.

In addition, they were slapped with a €5,000 (£4,300) fine for ‘improper conduct’.

It has also emerged that, just like Mourinho, their appeal was also unsuccessful.
