Premier League News: FA fines Chelsea coach £6,000
Chelsea coach, Marco Ianni, has been fined £6,000 by the Football Association, after admitting to an improper conduct charge, in his over-exuberant celebrations against Manchester United.
Maurizio Sarri’s second assistant coach sparked a touchline fracas, after celebrating Ross Barkley’s late equalizer in front of José Mourinho.
An FA statement read: “Chelsea coach Marco Ianni has been fined £6,000 after he admitted an FA improper conduct charge.
“It concerned his behaviour in the 96th minute of the game against Manchester United on 20 October 2018.”
The FA reminded Mourinho, Chelsea and Manchester United of their responsibilities in the aftermath of the incident, which occurred at the end of the 2-2 Premier League draw.
