Mourinho objected to referee Anthony Taylor refusing to give his side a penalty and claimed after the final whistle that there is a ‘campaign’ against his side.
An FA statement read: “Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, Jose Mourinho has been fined £25,000 after he was found to have breached FA Rules in relation to media comments.
“The Chelsea manager denied that comments he made after the game against Southampton on 28 December 2014 constituted improper conduct in that they alleged and/or implied bias on the part of a referee or referees, and/or brought the game into disrepute.
“The Independent Regulatory Commission found the comments were a breach of FA Rule E3 in that they were improper and brought the game into disrepute.
“The Commission did not, however, find that the comments implied bias on the part of a referee or referees.
“Mr Mourinho, who had requested a non-personal hearing, was also warned as to his future conduct.”
