MOURINHO ESCAPES UEFA CHARGE AFTER RUNNING ON TO THE PITCH TO CELEBRATE BA'S GOAL AGAINST PSG.

On the pitch: Jose Mourinho ran to celebrate and give instructions to his players after they netted a late goal

European governing body have said that Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho will not face disciplinary action after charging down the touchline as his players celebrated their tie-clinching goal against Paris Saint-Germain.

After Senegal international, Demba Ba fired the ball past Salvatore Sirigu in the dying stages of the Champions League quarter-final second leg at Stamford Bridge, Mourinho sprinted out of his technical area to the corner flag, where his players were celebrating wildly where he grabbed a number of players, whispering instructions in their ears.

After the match, Mourinho claimed he was not celebrating with his players, but instructing them on how to hold out for the win.

When asked what Mourinho was doing after the goal, he said: 'Not celebrating. To tell Fernando and Demba the changes we had to do because three minutes plus extra time the way we were playing was too risky.'

In England however, Mourinho was fined £8,000 by the Football Association and reminded of his responsibilities as a Premier League manager after being sent to the stands by Chris Foy during Chelsea's defeat by Aston Villa last month.
