Jose to escape FA sanction over alleged tunnel row

Jose to escape FA sanction over alleged tunnel row

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is to escape any action from the FA over an alleged bust-up in the tunnel after his side's controversial draw against West Brom on Saturday.

The Blues battled to the 2-2 draw only after they were awarded a controversial penalty deep into stoppage-time by referee Andre Marriner when Ramires went down in the box following a shoulder challenge from Steven Reid.

The Football Association has confirmed the referee's report did not include any mention of the fracas, and as such no action is anticipated from the governing body.

It is understood Mourinho came out of the home dressing room in response to hearing shouts from players, with the visitors unhappy at the manner of Chelsea’s late equaliser.

There was then a frank exchange of views between the Blues manager and West Brom defender Jonas Olsson where it was reported that he called Olsson a "mickey mouse player".

The situation was quickly diffused by club stewards and staff.
