In the early morning of March 11th, Beijing time, after the Italian National Sports Court of Appeal announced that Mourinho’s appeal failed, he was suspended for two games and fined 10,000 euros, the Portuguese updated their social platform and made a gesture of being handcuffed.
The Italian media interpreted Mourinho’s action as a protest against the rejection of the ban appeal. Many fans praised the madman’s behavior and thought that he dared to challenge the hidden rules and the authority.
Mourinho knows the heat. When he showed this controversial gesture, he also brought three advertisements. He loved Adidas, Hublot and MATILDE, a jewelry brand founded by his eldest daughter. The latest development of the Rome coach has attracted nearly 280,000 likes in just 4 hours, and there should be tens of millions of views.
Mourinho handcuffed the camera off the court when he was coaching Inter Milan. At that time, he was suspended for three games by the Italian Football Association and fined 40,000 euros. However, Mourinho’s handcuff action this time seems to be carrying goods, and there is no actual evidence to prove that he is provocative, so the Italian Football Association should not do anything about him.
Mourinho was suspended this time because of a fierce language conflict with the fourth official in the 1-2 defeat to the bottom team cremona 10 days ago. Because of the appeal, Mourinho’s suspension was suspended, so he can still lead the team to play Juventus at home in the last round. Now, Mourinho’s appeal has been rejected and he will miss the next two Serie A games against Lazio and Sampdoria.
