Thomas Tuchel has been fined more than twice as much as Antonio Conte for their clash during the match between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
The two managers clashed twice during the heated London derby at Stamford Bridge, which ended in a 2-2 draw after a dramatic late equaliser from Spurs striker Harry Kane. Having clashed on the touchline and then again at full-time, both Tuchel and Conte were charged by the FA following the match.
The FA have now confirmed that Tuchel has been fined £35,000 and handed a one-match touchline ban, with Spurs boss Conte instead fined just £15,000.

In a statement, the FA explained: "An independent Regulatory Commission has today ordered that Thomas Tuchel be fined £35,000 and banned from the touchline for one match, and Antonio Conte be fined £15,000 after they respectively breached FA Rule E3.
"Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte admitted that their behaviour after the final whistle of the Premier League game between Chelsea FC and Tottenham Hotspur FC on Sunday 14 August 2022 was improper, and both managers requested a paper hearing.
“These sanctions are subject to appeal, and Thomas Tuchel’s one match touchline ban has been suspended temporarily pending the independent Regulatory Commission’s written reasons for its decisions that will be made available in due course.”

With Tuchel’s ban being temporarily suspended, he will be present in the dugout for his side’s trip to Elland Road to face Leeds United on Sunday.
Leeds boss Jesse Marsch had said ahead of the match that Tuchel should not be allowed in the dugout having been sent off last weekend, telling the media, via The Sun: “That doesn’t seem right. I would be disappointed if that was allowed. A red card means you should not play the next match.
“In theory, when the manager’s not there it’s an advantage. I know his assistant Zsolt Low well – he has a brilliant football mind and no doubt will help out from there. I have always assumed a red means the manager is suspended – maybe that’s the wrong assumption!"
