Description

Chelsea midfielder Ramires will miss the rest of the Premier League season after accepting a charge of violent conduct. The Brazilian was sanctioned following an off-the-ball incident involving Sebastian Larsson during his side's 2-1 defeat by Sunderland on Saturday The 27-year-old will serve a four-match ban after a review panel decision. Manager Jose Mourinho and assistant Rui Faria are also subject to Football Association charges from the match. Ramires elbowed Larsson towards the end of the first half at Stamford Bridge, a few moments after the Sunderland midfielder had barged him off the ball in front of goal.The incident was later reviewed by a panel of former referees, and Ramires will now miss Chelsea's remaining Premier League fixtures this term - against Liverpool, Norwich and Cardiff - as well as their first game of next season. He is, however, eligible for the second leg of Chelsea's Champions League semi-final against Atletico Madrid next Wednesday. Mourinho was charged with misconduct following comments he made after the match. He congratulated both referee Mike Dean for his performance - which he described as "unbelievable" - and Mike Riley, head of refereeing body Professional Game Match Officials Limited, in a television interview. The FA alleges that his comments call into question the integrity of Dean and/or Riley and/or bring the game into disrepute. Faria, who had to be restrained from confronting Dean after Sunderland had been awarded what turned out to the match-winning penalty has been charged with two counts of misconduct. Mourinho and Faria have until 18:00 on Monday to respond to their charges.
