Chelsea coach charged with improper conduct

Chelsea assistant coach Marco Ianni could face the wrath of the FA as he has been charged for misconduct.

"I'm not saying they have to play narrow but wherever you start, you've got to end up in goalscoring positions more often".

"Even though we were 2-1 down, we kept trying to score the equaliser and we did that in the end so I think the spirit was fantastic", he added.

Ahead of the game between both teams, Maurizio Sarri's side were seen as the favourites to win due to home advantage and their impressive run of wins whilst not much could realistically be expected from Jose Mourinho's men.

Mourinho was taunted by Chelsea fans throughout Saturday's game at the Bridge, mostly due to his efforts to start an all-out brawl in the technical area following a run-in with Chelsea coach Marco Ianni. "I'm not going to kill you because of one.' He apologised and I accepted it". "What happened with Sarri's assistant, Sarri was the first one to come to me and say he will resolve it".

"We are talking about a coach that has won everything, everywhere, so I think you have to respect him".

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri spoke to Ianni after the incident and revealed he will do so again on Sunday when he will ask him to explain his actions.


Chelsea snatched out a draw against Manchester United in a four-goal thriller on Saturday.

"I told the players at half time I was thinking about winning this game in the second half".

"We just went to the tunnel to talk and to say to Mourinho to keep calm and then the same was said to our staff as well, then it was calm".

The club came seconds away from claiming another win and in west London, it could have turned their season around after so many struggles. "Now the situation is between me and the staff face to face".

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is to investigate suspicions that there is a mole in the Old Trafford dressing room.

"United are better than us at this kind of football, so I'm really disappointed at the last 30 minutes".

Due to the change of control of the match, Sarri was forced to make some substitutions, which allowed the team to utilise a more direct approach into United's penalty box.
