Following their altercations in Sunday’s London derby between Chelsea and Tottenham, the English Football Association has filed charges against Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel and Tottenham coach Antonio Conte.
Following Harry Kane’s equalizer in stoppage time, the weekend match between the two managers concluded in a 2-2 draw.
As a result of the altercation, referee Anthony Taylor also issued red cards to both managers. In a statement on Monday, August 15, the FA stated that it would accuse both managers of unlawful behavior.
Theys have until Thursday to respond to the charges.
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.”
The FA is also investigating Tuchel’s comments after the German coach slammed match referee, Taylor, for his decisions.
Tuchel accused Taylor and the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) of making wrong decisions which ultimately helped Spurs come away from Stamford Bridge with a point.
