Faria handed six-game ban

Created on 01 May., 2014 8:38 PM GMT

Chelsea assistant Rui Faria has been given a six-game stadium ban for his rant at referee Mike Dean during their 2-1 defeat to Sunderland.

Faria has also been fined £30,000, subject to an appeal, having been charged with two counts of misconduct for "abusive and/or insulting words towards the referee and improper conduct" following the defeat at Stamford Bridge.

He was visibly outraged by a late penalty decision awarded to the hosts and needed to be restrained by manager Jose Mourinho when officials told him to leave the technical area.
