EPL: Tuchel, Conte to be punished after fighting during 2-2 draw

The Football Association on Monday, charged Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte, the managers of Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, following a 2-2 draw on Sunday.

The two coaches have been charged with a breach of FA Rule E3.

A statement read in part: “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 two managers clashed on Sunday after Spurs twice came from behind to get a share of the points.

Tuchel called for a foul on Kai Havertz just before Spurs’ first equaliser and an offside on the goal, with Richarlison appearing to block Edouard Mendy’s view.

His protest saw him exchange words with Conte and both coaches were shown a yellow card.

At full-time, Conte and Tuchel went to shake hands but the Chelsea boss would not let go of his rival manager’s hand, gesturing for him to look in his eyes, prompting another melee as both managers were given their marching orders.
