Jose Mourinho banned from driving

Sydney FC v Chelsea FC

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been banned from driving for six months after being caught speeding on the A3 in Surrey.

The 52-year-old was caught by a speed camera doing 60mph in a 50mph zone in Esher, near Chelsea's training ground in Cobham, last September.

Mourinho pleaded guilty to the offence by post and did not attend a hearing at Staines Magistrates' Court. He was given three penalty points, which as he already had nine on his licence, saw him banned from the roads under the 'totting up' system.

Though Mourinho declined to give specifics of his earnings to the court, Magistrates took into account his 'significant income' and imposed a fine of £1,820 for the offence, in addition to court costs and surcharges. The recent Sunday Times Rich List estimated Mourinho's fortune to be around £40 million.

This is not his first brush with UK authorities. In 2007 Mourinho was arrested and later cautioned after obstructing police who were attempting to put his pet dog into quarantine, by letting it loose, after allegedly taking it out of the country without the proper injections.

Jose Mourinho has headed Chelsea football club since 2013, after returning to Stamford Bridge from Real Madrid. He previously governed the London side from 2004-2007.
