UEFA has banned Roma manager Jose Mourinho for four matches after spitting out abusive language at referee Anthony Taylor during the Europa League final.

A footage on social media after the final game where Sevilla won on penalties after the game in Budapestshowed Mourinho confronting Taylor and his team in the car park and labelling their performance a “disgrace.”

The former Manchester United and Chelsea boss also continued his criticism of the officials in his post-match press conference.

Taylor and his family were also harassed by Roma supporters as they made their way home from the final.

Sevilla won on penalties to condemn Mourinho to his first defeat in a European final after an ill-tempered match that saw British referee Taylor dish out 14 yellow cards, the most ever in a Europa League game, and play almost 30 minutes of stoppage time in total.

While Mourinho was individually charged, both clubs have also been charged with a number of offences by UEFA.
