Reece James has been fined £90,000 by the FA and will also be suspended for one match for using ‘improper, abusive and insulting’ words’ and behaviour in Chelsea’s defeat against Aston Villa last month.
The problems don’t cease for Reece James, the player has already missed eight matches after he suffered a hamstring injury in training. The Englishman has been fined £90,000 by the FA and will also be suspended for one match for using ‘improper, abusive and insulting’ words’ and behaviour.
FA statement read: “Reece James has been given a one-game suspension and £90,000 fine for breaching FA Rule E3 at Chelsea’s Premier League match against Aston Villa on Sunday 24 September.
The events occurred in Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa last month when James, who was out through injury, insulted the referees in the tunnel. The right-back will miss Chelsea’s trip to Burnley this weekend, a game he would also have missed due to the physical problems he has been carrying since picking up an injury in August.
Meanwhile, Chelsea seem to have some breathing space after the last away win against Fulham by 0-2. Pochettino’s side are looking to continue their winning ways and put behind them the bad run of results and injuries they have been suffering.
