Mourinho Is Charged With Improper Conduct After Cardiff Match

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was charged with improper conduct by English soccer’s governing body after being sent to the stands during his team’s 4-1 win against Cardiff City three days ago.

Mourinho was ordered from the technical area by referee Anthony Taylor after protesting about what he said was time-wasting by Cardiff, and sat with supporters for the final 20 minutes of the Premier League match.

The Football Association said last night in an e-mailed statement that Mourinho has until 6 p.m. on Oct. 24 to respond to the charge, which could result in a reprimand, fine or suspension.
