Chelsea boss Mourinho sure to blow fuse over Toure ruling

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is sure to have something to say about Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure being cleared by the FA yesterday.

Toure kicked Ricky van Wolfswinkel during the 0-0 draw with Norwich on Saturday, but avoided a retrospective ban late yesterday.

Before the ruling, Mourinho told the London Evening Standard: "I don't understand why you say 'if' because if you say 'if' and he's not suspended, the message is clear for the players: you can do what you want. If the referee doesn't see, you can do what you want.

"If it becomes a no suspension the message is there. Normally if the FA defends football, he has to be suspended."
