• FA may announce further sanction on Wednesday
• Mourinho sent to stands for second time this season
José Mourinho is expected to learn on Wednesday whether he is to face further sanction from the Football Association after being sent to the stands in stoppage time of Saturday's Premier League defeat at Aston Villa.
The governing body is still scrutinising the referee's report and footage of the incident, sparked by Ramires's ugly challenge on Karim El Ahmadi and subsequent sending off. The challenge had prompted a mini pitch invasion from both dugouts, with Mourinho sent to the stands after returning to the pitch seeking to speak to the referee, Chris Foy.
That was the second occasion he has been sent from the technical area this season having suffered a similar fate in the victory over Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge in October.
The Chelsea manager, whose team take on Galatasaray in the second leg of their last-16 Champions League tie on Tuesday evening, will not face sanction from the FA for his post-match comments about Foy's performance. The official had earlier dismissed Willian for two bookable offences and Mourinho suggest afterwards that it would be "helpful" if Foy did not take charge of the club's games in future.
That notion was quickly dismissed by Professional Game Match Officials Limited, who make appointments for Premier League matches, and the FA ruled that Mourinho had not questioned the integrity of the referee and had, therefore, not left himself open to a misconduct charge. The Chelsea manager had suggested on Monday that, while Ramires's lunge had merited a red card, it had been prompted by frustration that had built up at the official's performance over the course of the game at Villa Park.
The FA is studying Foy's report of the 92nd-minute incident and will look at video evidence before deciding whether the Portuguese should face further punishment for his dismissal. He had been fined £8,000, the standard penalty for breaching FA rule E3, for the misdemeanour back in October and accepted the charge.
