Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, has been fined £8,000 after accepting a Football Association misconduct charge, following his dismissal against Swansea.
Conte was sent to the stands by referee Neil Swarbrick towards the end of the first half in Chelsea’s 1-0 victory, after angrily protesting against the award of a Swansea goal-kick.
The Italian later apologised to Swarbrick and fourth official Lee Mason following the match at Stamford Bridge on November 29.
“Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been fined £8,000 after he admitted an FA misconduct charge and accepted the standard penalty.
“It follows his sending-off against Swansea City on 29 November,” the FA said in a statement on Wednesday.
