Chelsea boss Villas-Boas fined for ref rant
BBC, November 23rd, 2011 12:48PM

MOST COMMENTED

The English FA fined Chelsea coach Andre Villas-Boas $18,600 for comments he made about referee Chris Foy after Chelsea's 1-0 loss at Queens Park Rangers last month.

Foy sent off Jose Bosingwa and Didier Drogba, booked seven other Chelsea players, and awarded QPR a penalty kick.

Villas-Boas said after the game: "The ref was poor, very very poor and it reflected in the result. I spoke to him at the end and I was very aggressive to him. I don't care if he's OK or not. Who's been hit the hardest?

"Everyone can have a bad day, but this was not a bad day for us. It was a good day for us and a bad day for the referee. Three of the games played by Chelsea were influenced by the referee, and this is not Premier League level. Conspiracy theories can lead to bans and lead to you calling us cry babies and we're not, but it keeps happening."
