Thomas Tuchel, the manager of Chelsea, was given a one-game touchline suspension with a £35,000 fine that is currently suspended, while Antonio Conte, the manager of Tottenham, was given a £15,000 punishment for their roles in the altercation on the touchline during the match between Chelsea and Tottenham.
In the wake of his post-match altercation with Tottenham manager Conte at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, August 14, Tuchel was found to be the guiltyer party by an impartial regulatory committee.
At the conclusion of the game, Tuchel and Conte were each given a red card. As they shook hands, they began to argue, with the Blues manager accusing Conte of refusing to look him in the eyes.
In addition, Tuchel was given a pecuniary penalty of £35,000 as opposed to Conte’s £15,000 fine.
According to an FA spokesperson: ‘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.
‘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.’
‘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.’
