It's unlikely that Jose Mourinho and referee Chris Foy will be out at the pub having beers any time soon. 

Mourinho's Chelsea side fell to Aston Villa mid-March, and Mourinho was incensed at a few unfavourable decisions that went against the Blues. He was later fined £8,000 for confronting Foy in the dying stages of the match. 

Now, according to the Telegraph's Henry Winter, Chelsea fans will be putting in an effort to pay for Mourinho's fine.

Mourinho is reportedly paid very well, as per NBC Pro Soccer Talk, so as good-natured as the supporters' efforts are, perhaps they could be spent elsewhere.
