Jose Mourinho will face no retrospective action from the Premier League after snubbing their mandatory managers’ summit on Tuesday.
A raft of top-flight bosses attended the meeting at London’s Gloucester Place, while Mauricio Pochettino and a number of others sat through a separate briefing in Stoke last Wednesday. Sportsmail understands that Mourinho had forewarned the Premier League of his absence earlier in the week and will not be fined after the no-show. Premier League officials stated on Wedensday they had accepted the Chelsea manager’ s legitimate reasoning and that Chelsea had made arrangements for him to be handed any relevant documents. The Portuguese remains at loggerheads with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger after their failure to shake hands at the end of Sunday’s Community Shield at Wembley.
