Topics

ROME - Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho has been fined 18,000 euros for his outburst after last month's Milan derby, the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) said on Thursday.

Mourinho was charged with casting doubts about the regularity of Serie A for saying "everything was done for us not to win" after his side beat AC Milan 2-0 despite having two players sent off.

The Portuguese, 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 euros for questioning the Italian Football League's neutrality after Milan managed to have a fixture before the derby rescheduled.

The club were fined 38,000 euros for the pair's comments by a disciplinary committee, the FIGC said on its website.

Mourinho agreed to pay a 13,000-euro fine last week to settle a disciplinary case over an altercation with a journalist in December.
