Mourinho punished

ROME, September 21 – Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho was on Monday hit with a one-match touchline ban and a 15,000-euro fine after he was sent off during Sunday's 2-1 win at Cagliari.JOSEMOURONHO_1_The Portuguese boss was sent to the stands 13 minutes after the break after protesting vehemently on the sideline after referee Daniele Orsato failed to book Cagliari player Davide Astori for a foul on Inter’s Mario Balotelli.

Italy’s football judicial body said Mourinho "had theatrically contested a referee’s decision and repeatedly directed harsh insults at the referee".

It is not Mourinho’s first ban in Italy having been suspended for one game last season as well.

It was also his third sending off in Italy — and second by Orsato — having been dismissed in home matches against Sampdoria and Fiorentina.
