No special treatment for the Special One.

JOSE MOURINHO HAS been handed a six-month driving ban after pleading guilty to speeding.

The Chelsea manager was caught doing 60mph in a 50mph zone on the A3 in Esher, Surrey, close to the club’s training ground at Cobham.

Mourinho pleaded guilty to the charge at Staines magistrates’ court, and was banned and fined, having already accrued nine points on his licence.

The Portuguese was fined £750, with extra court costs and surcharges on top of that sanction.

Meanwhile, Mourinho has hinted he will swoop for Monaco forward Radamel Falcao.

Falcao was endorsed by 111-time Colombia international Carlos Valderrama to lead the nation to Copa America glory, and he was the name on everybody’s lips – as Chelsea boss Mourinho said he was keen to help the 29-year-old succeed in England.

“It hurts me that people in England believe the real Falcao is the one seen at Manchester United,” Mourinho told DirectTV.

“He is a player that I know from [coaching against] Atletico Madrid, and if I can help Falcao to reach his level, I will.”

Falcao scored only four Premier League goals in 2014-15, and none since February – although he has struck four times at international level of late.
