ose Mourinho has been charged by UEFA for using ‘insulting/abusive language against a match official’ after confrontations with Anthony Taylor during Wednesday’s Europa League final.

The Roma manager and his staff were abusive towards the Premier League referee numerous times during the defeat to Sevilla in Budapest.

Mourinho continued his criticism of the officials in his post-match press conference, saying: “I need to defend my lads, and I must say that we are used to it, but still seeing this kind of refereeing in a European final is really, really hard.

“It was an intense, vibrant game with a referee who seemed Spanish. It was yellow, yellow, yellow all the time.”

Taylor and his family were also harassed as they made their way home from the final on Thursday.

Clips on social media show them being ushered out of a cafe and into a secure area by airport security after supporters hounded the referee following an ill-tempered final on Wednesday evening.
