Uefa have confirmed that they will not be holding an investigation into claims that that Jose Mourinho was in contact with his coaching staff during Chelsea’s 4-2 defeat of Bayern Munich.
The Portuguese coach was banned from the touchline following an allegation made against Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard in the previous round of the UEFA Champions League.
Mourinho was not present at Stamford Bridge during Chelsea’s win but it had been suggested that some form of contact was being made with the club’s fintess coach Rui Faria.
Faria was in constant discussion with Mourinho’s assistants Steve Clarke and Baltemar Brito, and it has been sugggested that he was relaying claims from Mourinho. If this was the case then the Chelsea coach would have been in breach of his ban.
However, Mourinho Uefa spokesman Frits Ahlstrom has stated that there is no case to answer.
”I can confirm that Uefa has nothing to report about any incidents of any kind during the match,” said Ahlstrom.
Mourinho’s assistant Brito insisted that there had been no contact with Mourinho.
”There was no contact at all,” confirmed Brito.
”I have not spoken to him or seen him.
”We prepared for this game last week and the last time I saw him was two or three hours before kick-off.”
