Report: Mourinho may face Premier League questioning

Jose Mourinho Chelsea

The Premier League will write to Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho over his current media blackout.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho may face questions from the Premier League over his current media blackout, reports the Telegraph.

Mourinho is currently fighting an FA charge of misconduct about comments made to the media, and has been warned about his future comments as well.

That has led to him not talking to the media since his charge, and it is understood he intends to maintain that stance while the process of his charge is on-going.

That attitude stands firm in the face of Premier League rules, which state that managers must speak to the media both before and after games.

Mourinho was charged following his comments after the draw with Southampton, wherein he suggested that there was a campaign against his side. The FA felt that those comments alleged or implied bias by the officials and duly charged the Portuguese manager.

According to the newspaper, Chelsea feel that their manager would only risk saying something that would cause further punishment if he were to speak to the media and that is why he is avoiding speaking to them.

This is not the first time Mourinho has faced punishment from the governing bodies, as he is not one who holds back on his opinions. Last year alone he was fined by the FA on several occasions, with his fines totalling £26,000 for the campaign.
