How pathetic is that.

FA statement

"Having carefully considered the Written Reasons of the Independent Regulatory Commission relating to the case involving José Mourinho, The FA can confirm it is appealing the decision."

The original panel concluded

"We find that Jose Mourinho was celebrating victory without aiming the words at anyone in particular. His words were inaudible. We do not accept that he shouted the expression, as stated by Mr Xavier in his report. Jose Mourinho repeats the words, first looking away and then the second time we do accept that he is seen briefly glancing towards the lens of the broadcaster’s camera. The words mouthed were a Portuguese colloquial profanity. Thus, the objective person would have had to lip read Jose Mourinho's mouth and interpret Portuguese colloquialisms to accurately decipher the comments."
