Chelsea manager charged by FA after Swansea dismissal

Date published: Friday 1st December 2017 7:38

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association following his dismissal against Swansea on Wednesday.

The Italian was sent to the stands by referee Neil Swarbrick towards the end of the first half of Chelsea’s 1-0 victory after furiously protesting the award of a Swansea goal-kick.

He later apologised to Swarbrick and fourth official Lee Mason but has been charged.

He has until 6pm on Tuesday to respond but, given his apology, Conte is unlikely to contest the charge and will accept the punishment, which is anticipated to be a fine.
