Chelsea’s Tuchel Receives Touchline Ban While Conte is handed £15,000 Fine
Thomas Tuchel has received a temporarily suspended one-game touchline ban and fined £35,000 while Antonio Conte has just been hit with a £15,000 penalty after their touchline bust-up.
Chelsea manager Tuchel has been deemed the guiltier party by an independent regulatory commission following his post-match clash with Tottenham boss Conte at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Tuchel and Conte were both red carded at full-time and then exchanged words as they shook hands, with the Blues boss taking exception to Conte’s refusal to look him in the eyes.
Tension had built between the pair during the second-half as they celebrated their team’s goals and they were subsequently charged with ‘improper’ behaviour.
Chelsea have exercised their right by applying to have Tuchel’s ban suspended while they await written reasons for his punishment and the differing sanction handed to Conte.
Both managers, who also have the right to appeal, will subsequently be in charge of their team’s fixtures this weekend though the threat of a suspension remains hanging over Tuchel.
