Mourinho was suspended after aggressively abusing referee Anthony Taylor following the Europa League final last month.
Jose Mourinho, the manager of Roma, has decided to resign from his position on the UEFA football board, less than two days after the European football governing body handed him a four-match ban.
It was previously reported that the Portuguese strategist was suspended on Wednesday, June 21, for angrily insulting English referee Anthony Taylor following the Europa League final last month.
The game concluded 1-1 after extra time, with Sevilla winning the penalty shootout against Roma.
Following the game, video emerged showing Mourinho approaching Taylor and hurling expletives at him outside the stadium.
He was subsequently found guilty of “directing abusive language at a match official” and suspended for four European matches. in addition to Mourinho’s ban, Roma were also fined £47,500 and restricted from selling tickets to their supporters for their next European match on the road.
But according to ESPN, Mourinho has now opted to step away from his role with UEFA after the ban.
His letter read: “In thanking you for the invitation you extended to me to be a member of the UEFA football board, I regret to inform you that, effective immediately, I will be renouncing my participation in this group.
“The conditions which I so strongly believed in when I joined are no longer standing and I felt the obligation to take this decision.
“I kindly ask that you also communicate my decision to the President, Mr. Aleksander Ceferin.”
