Mourinho was sent to the stands by referee Chris Foy after going on to the pitch following a red card being shown to his player Ramires and on Wednesday became subject to further disciplinary action from the FA.

"For obvious reasons I don't accept the charges," Mourinho said.

Asked the basis for his defence, the Blues boss added: "I have to do it Monday, I have to do it privately."
