Fans are turning on Jose Mourinho after the disgusting behaviour towards Anthony Taylor, who oversaw AS Roma vs. Sevilla.
Roma lost 4-1 on penalties to Sevilla who claimed a record-extending seventh Europa League title following their triumph in Budapest on Wednesday.
The defeat left a sour taste in Mourinho's mouth as he furiously confronted the Premier League referee after the result.
Upon arriving at the airport to return to the UK, Taylor was mobbed by Roma fans as they targetted him in shocking scenes.
Oliver Holt and Jeff Stelling have led the condemnation by blaming the 60-year-old for the actions aimed at the Englishman.
Holt tweeted: "The words and actions of Jose Mourinho have consequences."
Stelling added: "Jose Mourinho actions and words contributed massively to the disgraceful behaviour towards Antony Taylor. He is a repeat repeat repeat offender . Needs the strongest possible punishment."
Fans online agreed with Holt and Stelling as they made their feelings known about Mourinho's antics, calling for heavy sanctions.
One Twitter user wrote: "I don’t care if Taylor made 20 bad decisions in that game (altho as I hear he reffed brilliantly), Mourinho has form for this and I hope he’s ashamed. It’s an embarrassment."
A second tweeted: "Absolutely agree Jeff. Taylor refereed that game really well despite the appalling behaviour of Roma players and officials."
A third added: "Hope a few managers in the Premier League take a long hard look at this then have a stern word with themselves about their touchline antics & post match comments."
A fourth said: "Points deduction on teams on consistent basis is the only way players, managers and fans will change."
Did Mourinho cross the line? Let us know what you think.
