Mourinho was sent to the stands by referee Chris Foy for encroaching on the turf after Chelsea’s Brazilian midfielder Ramires had been shown a straight red card for a tackle on Aston Villa’s Moroccan international Karim El Ahmadi.“Jose Mourinho has been charged by The FA following his side’s game against Aston Villa on Saturday 15 March 2014,” the FA said in a statement yesterday.
