Mourinho will contest FA charge for comments after Sunderland loss
APR 28, 2014 8:03p ET
Relegation-threatened Sunderland ended Mourinho's 77-match unbeaten home league run with a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge on April 19. An angry Mourinho made sarcastic comments after the game, describing referee Mike Dean's performance as ''unbelievable'' and ''fantastic.''
The FA said he has requested a non-personal hearing in the case. His assistant Rui Faria, who was dismissed for angrily confronting the match officials, has admitted two charges of misconduct.
Midfielder Ramires received a four-match ban for elbowing Sebastian Larsson during the match.
