London - Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been fined £8 000 by the Football Association on Thursday after being sent to the stands during his team's 4-1 win against Cardiff last weekend.
Mourinho admitted a charge of improper conduct following his dismissal by referee Anthony Taylor in the Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
A statement from the FA read: "Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been fined £8 000 after he admitted a breach of FA Rule E3 in that his behaviour in or around the 69th minute of his side's game against Cardiff City on 19 October 2013 amounted to improper conduct.
"The fine is the standard penalty for the offence."
Mourinho, who accused Cardiff of employing time-wasting tactics from early in the match, ended up sitting with Chelsea supporters behind the dug-outs after being ordered from the touchline midway through the second half for repeatedly voicing his frustration to Taylor and fourth official Trevor Kettle.
The former Real Madrid boss had already revealed he would accept his punishment, having read the referee's report.
Speaking following the 3-0 Champions League win at Schalke on Tuesday, he said: "What the referee wrote is true. I was not aggressive, I was not offensive. I just had a disagreement.
"In the game that is resolved with, 'Shut up and sit down', you don't need to go to the stands.
"But I accept the fine and against Manchester City on Sunday I can work."
