Antonio Conte thinks of escaping a suspension after his altercation with Thomas Tuchel

Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte parted Sunday with a stormy handshake. The two men had a heated altercation after the Premier League match between their respective teams, Chelsea and Tottenham (2-2), and they were logically excluded by referee Anthony Taylor. The Spurs coach, who joked about the situation a few hours later on social media, has already moved on.

The Italian technician said on Thursday that he did not expect to be suspended for the reception of Wolverhampton which is scheduled for Saturday. If the suspension of a coach who has received a red card is not automatic, unlike the players, nothing has been decided for the two London coaches.

“It’s not the first time, it won’t be the last time that two coaches don’t behave in the right way or don’t agree”

They have until Thursday evening to defend their case with the English football authorities who will make their decision in the next 24 hours. And the least we can say is that Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte are far from out of the woods, the English Federation (FA) having accused them of “inappropriate conduct”.

Nothing to worry about the former coach of Inter Milan. “We have to accept and respect every decision, but I think sometimes this type of situation can happen”cleared Conte on Thursday, before continuing: “It’s not the first time, it won’t be the last time that two coaches don’t behave in the right way or don’t agree.” “But the most important thing is that we have to move on, have respect for each other. And for me, the situation ends there.he insisted.
