Thomas Tuchel of Chelsea and Antonio Conte of Tottenham have both received punishment from the English Football Association for their “inappropriate behavior” during Sunday’s Premier League match between their respective sides.
Tuchel received a one-match suspension and a £35,000 punishment from the FA on Friday, while Conte received a £15,000 fine.
“An independent Regulatory Commission has today ordered that Thomas Tuchel be fined £35,000 and banned from the touchline for one match, and Antonio Conte be fined £15,000 after they respectively breached FA Rule E3,” the statement reads in part.
The FA further said, the duo, “Tuchel and Conte admitted that their behaviour after the final whistle of the Premier League game between Chelsea FC and Tottenham Hotspur FC on Sunday 14 August 2022 was improper, and both managers requested a paper hearing.”
After arguing about the match’s technicalities, Tuchel and Conte were both dismissed from the game, which had been marked by poor officiating from centre referee Anthony Taylor and VAR Mike Dean.
The game resulted in a 2-2 draw, but the heated exchange between the managers dominated the conversations following Chelsea and Tottenham’s matchup on Sunday night last week.
