Thomas Tuchel And Antonio Conte CHARGED With Improper Conduct By FA
Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte have been charged by the FA for the furious touchline bust-up that overshadowed Sunday’s London derby.
Chelsea manager Tuchel and Tottenham boss Conte twice had to be separated during the 2-2 draw, sparking furious scenes at Stamford Bridge.
And the FA confirmed on Monday night that the pair have been charged with improper conduct.
Both managers were shown red cards after clashing at the full-time whistle and could be heading for a touchline ban or a fine if found guilty by the FA.
Tuchel is also under investigation for comments that he made after the game in which he appeared to question the integrity of referee Anthony Taylor, suggesting that the 43-year-old should not be allowed to officiate Chelsea matches in future.
An FA spokesman said: ‘Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte have both been charged with a breach of FA Rule E3, following the Premier League fixture between Chelsea FC and Tottenham Hotspur FC on Sunday 14 August 2022.
‘It is alleged that the behaviour of both managers was improper following the end of the fixture.
‘Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte have until Thursday 18 August 2022 to provide their respective responses.’
