Chelsea FC boss, Thomas Tuchel is likely to face punishment for his comment about the referee , Anthony Taylor as The Blues clashed with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
The German claimed after the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday that “maybe it would be better” for the referee not to officiate Chelsea again, with the Blues boss incensed that both of Spurs’ goals were allowed to stand.
Tuchel and Spurs boss Antonio Conte clashed twice on the touchline, after which the two managers were then sent off at full-time when a handshake between the pair sparked further ugly moments.
Tuchel accepted in the aftermath on Sunday that he would be likely to face FA punishment, and now the governing body has moved to follow up with an investigation.
Tuchel lamented both Spurs’ goals being allowed to stand, claiming Richarlison was offside for Hojbjerg’s effort and that after Chelsea had claimed a foul on Kai Havertz in the build-up.
The Blues were then left furious that Christian Romero was not punished for pulling Cucurella’s hair, with a VAR check ruling out a red card but then not imposing any sanction.
