"His assistant Rui Faria was sent to the stands and later given a six-match stadium ban."
London, May 9 - Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho was fined $16,900 by the English Football Association after he made improper comments about match officials.

Mourinho sarcastically described referee Mike Dean's performance as unbelievable and fantastic as his side lost 2-1 to Sunderland in an April 19 Premier League match, reported Xinhua.

His assistant Rui Faria was sent to the stands and later given a six-match stadium ban.

The FA Thursday found that Mourinho's comments did not question the officials' integrity but amounted to disrepute and improper conduct.
