FA await referee's report on Mourinho insult

The Football Association will study referee Mike Riley's report before deciding whether to take action against Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho for his allegedly calling the referee a filho da puta - which translates as 'son of a whore' or 'son of a bitch'.




Mourinho used the phrase in a confrontation with Riley at half time in the FA Cup quarter-final 3-3 draw with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.


Mourinho has denied he intended to offend the match official. He said: 'If you listen to me speaking I say the kind of word you mention 10 times in every 15 words. 'If you have a microphone on the dugout, I say that during the game 20 times, easy.


The word can be abusive if you understand it as an abusive word. 'I tell the word to my players when I am not happy. I say it 50 times in a game, 50 times in training and I don't want to be offensive. 'I can be emotional, but I am polite. I never want to be offensive with somebody.'

I can't be bothered with anything recently. Maybe tomorrow. I've just been sitting around waiting for something to happen. What can I say? My life's been pretty unremarkable lately. Whatever.Please visite my site:)
