West Ham and Chelsea receive FA fines for players’ actions

West Ham Upton Park.

West Ham and Chelsea have received respective fines of £40,000 (€56,470) and £50,000 (€70,580) after a match at Upton Park on October 24 which saw five players booked, one sent off and unacceptable behaviour toward officials.

Both of the clubs accepted that their players acted unacceptably and an FA statement read, 

“The charge was for failing to ensure players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion. Both clubs were also severely warned as to their future conduct.”

In the match which ended in a 2-1 victory for West Ham, five Chelsea players were booked and both midfielder Matic and manager Mourinho were sent off. Just before half time players for West Ham surrounded the referee and were joined by Chelsea players after Matic received a second booking and was sent off.

Mourinho was given a one game stadium ban and a fine of £40,000 (€56,470).
