After Conte altercation, Chelsea’s Tuchel was given a match ban against Leicester

The Football Association said on Friday that Thomas Tuchel, the coach of Chelsea, will be prohibited from the sidelines when they visit Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday due to his behaviour in their 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur earlier this month.

Spurs left Stamford Bridge with a point, and Tuchel accused the referees and officials of making mistakes. Temperaments also broke out, and the German and his Tottenham counterpart, Italian Antonio Conte, both received red cards for fighting. Both managers received fines from the FA, but only Tuchel will receive a suspension since the FA considered him to be “primarily responsible” for the altercation that broke out after the managers’ post-game handshake.

The FA released a statement saying that “the manager (Tuchel) confessed that his conduct following the conclusion of the Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur was unacceptable.” He was subsequently given a 35,000 pound ($41,202) fine and a one-fixture touchline suspension by an independent Regulatory Commission.

Thomas Tuchel filed an appeal against these penalties, but the Appeal Board today dismissed it. After the on-field referee and video assistant referee failed to intervene when Spurs centre back Cristian Romero tugged the hair of Chelsea defender Marc Cucurella late in the second half, Tuchel became enraged. Tuchel had stated, prior to the FA’s announcement of its decision, that while he did not contest the red card and touchline suspension, he considered it puzzling that Conte had not received a comparable penalty.

“The context is what’s difficult to accept. I don’t believe the aggression began with me; it began before. We both received a red card, and I don’t believe I was the only one involved, Tuchel told reporters “A player grabbed another player by the hair two minutes ago. He is not prohibited, thus he is free to continue playing. One coach is suspended for a strong handshake at the conclusion of the game. Although I find it very difficult to accept this, I must.

Tuchel stated that he would still be able to visit the stadium and remain in the locker room despite the touchline ban. With four points after three games, Chelsea is in 12th place overall, five points behind leaders Arsenal. Spurs are in fourth place, two points behind first.
