FA Charge Conte With Misconduct After Dismissal Vs Swansea

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been charged by the FA after he was sent to the stands during the Premier League win over Swansea on Wednesday night.

It was the first time the Italian was dismissed from the touchline in his Chelsea reign.

A statement from the English FA reads: “Antonio Conte has been charged with misconduct following his dismissal against Swansea City in the 43rd minute of the game yesterday [Wednesday 29 November].

“The Chelsea manager has until 6pm on 5 December to respond to the charge.”

The Italian was dismissed minutes before half time for protesting a goal kick awarded to Swansea by referee Neil Swarbrick and not a corner. He also questioned the visitors for time wasting.

Conte has since apologised to referee Neil Swarbrick and fourth official Lee Mason for his misconduct after his side’s 1-0 win over Swansea.

Chelsea are currently third in the English Premier League table with 29 points from 14 games.
