Mourinho made a gesture to the referee on Saturday and then pushed a ball away.

Italian daily La Stampa reported that Mourinho shouted at official Luca Pairetto: “They sent you here on purpose, Juventus sent you.”

He was handed his suit orders in stoppage time of the Serie A clash.

After the match, Mourinho wrote on Instagram: “I love these people and for them I fight.”

The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) said Mourinho had “made serious accusations” against the referee, and entered the field “with a threatening attitude, blatantly contesting the referee’s decision”.
