EPL: FA fines Tuchel and Conte, gives suspended one match ban to Tuchel

After the clash between the managers of Chelsea and Tottenham, last weekend, both coaches have been fined by the Football Association (FA) with Chelsea manager getting a suspended one match ban.

The German and Italian coaches were involved in a few tussles during the Premier League match at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues boss has also been banned for one game, though that punishment has been suspended for the time being.

The two managers clashed more than once during the London derby at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Once on the touchline after Tottenham’s first goal and then again when they shook hands after the match, resulting in both being shown red cards.

The FA has handed out fines to the duo, though they may appeal against the punishments.

“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,” a statement read.

“Thomas Tuchel and Antonio 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.”

The statement added: “These sanctions are subject to appeal, and Thomas Tuchel’s one match touchline ban has been suspended temporarily pending the independent Regulatory Commission’s written reasons for its decisions that will be made available in due course.”

In an interview with Sky Sports, Tuchel stated that it was just normal in football.

“It’s emotional, football. We don’t need to heat it up.

“You have emotional coaches on the touchline and that’s it. If we meet [later], we meet. If not, then not. Come on guys, it’s between two competitors and nothing bad happened.”

He then told BBC Sport: “It was hot from the temperature and hot between the benches and hot on the field and hot between the spectators – everything that you want and what you hope in a match like this early in the season.

Conte then took to Instagram to joke about the tension between him and his Chelsea counterpart.

He posted an image of Tuchel running down the touchline

to celebrate his team’s goal, adding:

“Lucky I didn’t see you… Making you trip over would have been well deserved.”
