Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho's sarcasm after the home defeat at the hands of Sunderland on April 19th.
The Football Association on Thursday evening announced Mourinho had been fined £10,000 for his comments made after he witnessed Chelsea lose their 77 match unbeaten run to the bottom placed club when the Black Cats won 2-1.
The defeat also saw his assistant Rui Faria sent to the stands before picking up a six game stadium ban for his efforts to look like some sort of hard man during the game.
Mourinho congratulated his Chelsea players, Sunderland and then moved on to the officials.
He described referee Mike Dean's performance as 'unbelievable' and 'fantastic', before dishing out more sarcasm to referees' chief Mike Riley.
It was found at an FA Hearing that Mourinho's comments amounted to disrepute and improper conduct.
A FA statement read: 'Following an independent regulatory commission hearing, Jose Mourinho has been fined £10,000 in relation to comments he made after Chelsea's game against Sunderland on April 19, 2014.
'While the commission did not find that Mourinho's post-match comments called into question the integrity of the referee appointed to the above fixture and/or the integrity of Mike Riley, general manager of the Professional Game Match Officials Limited, they did find that the comments brought the game into disrepute and the charge for improper conduct was found proven.'
