Inter coach Jose Mourinho has been fined €18,000 for his outburst after last month’s Milan derby, the Italian Football Federation said on Thursday.
Mourinho was charged with casting doubts about the integrity of Serie A by saying “everything was done for us not to win” after his side beat Milan 2-0 despite having two players sent off.
The former Porto and Chelsea coach, whose side are nine points clear at the top of Serie A, also said the game had left a “strange taste” in his mouth, adding: “I’ve realised they won’t let us wrap up the championship early”.
Inter chief executive Ernesto Paolillo was fined €20,000 for questioning the Italian League’s neutrality after Milan managed to have a fixture before the derby rescheduled and the club were fined €38,000 for the pair’s comments by a disciplinary committee.
Mourinho agreed to pay a €13,000 fine last week to settle a disciplinary case over an altercation with a journalist in December.
