Chelsea Head of Communications and Public Affairs Steve Atkins explains why Jose Mourinho has chosen to not appear in front of the press ever since learning of the charges that the FA have brought against him following his comments after the Southampton draw.
According to the Telegraph, Mourinho will indeed be fined for every Premier League press conference he misses.
The Premier League is poised to fine Jose Mourinho for pulling out of his pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday’s game against Newcastle United.
It is not the first time it has happened which means, on this occasion, when the matter is then referred back to the Premier League’s board Chelsea can expect a fine, not a warning.
Under Premier League rules it is the manager who has to attend the press conferences, not a coach. Indeed the media rules are extremely specific and clubs are threatened with fines if they breach them.
Silence… Fingers crossed!
