Mourinho to contest FA charge

Jose Mourinho has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association after being sent off during Chelsea's 1-0 Premier League defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday.

LONDON -- Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says he does not accept the FA charge for improper conduct after Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa last Saturday, and will decide his response on Monday.

Worrall: Blues' indiscipline

The Chelsea manager was sent off for encroaching onto the pitch in the chaotic aftermath of Ramires’s red card for a stamp, with that also following Willian’s early dismissal for two yellow cards.

The FA announced they would charge Mourinho on Thursday.

"I've decided I don't accept the charges," the Chelsea boss told a news conference. "I have to wait until Monday and work out what I will do. For you, it's enough to know that, for obvious reasons, I don't accept the charges."

Those decisions mean both players are suspended for the visit of Arsenal to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

"As a consequence of the last game, we don't have Ramires and Willian, and Ashley Cole is still out. Marco van Ginkel is playing tonight against Man United in the under-21s' competition. Nothing else, I think."

Mourinho has until 6 p.m. on Monday to respond to the charge.
