FA issue six-match stadium suspension to Chelsea coach

Rui Faria, the Chelsea coach, has been given a six-match stadium ban as a result of his altercation with match officials in last month's league defeat by Sunderland.

Faria had to be restrained on the touchline by manager Jose Mourinho after reacting furiously when referee Mike Dean awarded a penalty to the Wearside team.

Faria has also been fined £30,000 after admitting two charges of misconduct. An FA statement read: "Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, Chelsea coach Rui Faria has been given a six-match stadium ban with immediate effect, subject to any appeal, after he admitted two breaches of FA rules.

"Faria, who requested a non-personal hearing, was also fined £30,000 and warned as to his future conduct."
