Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was sent off from the touchline after his disagreement with the referee.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte explains the frustrations that led to him being sent off and expresses his regret.

Chelsea coach Antonio Conte has been charged with misconduct following his dismissal against Swansea on Wednesday, the Football Association announced.

He will have until 6 p.m. on Tuesday evening to respond to the charge, at which point he could face a fine or a further touchline ban.

Conte was sent to the stands and then down the tunnel by referee Neil Swarbrick after a number of compaints. The final straw came as he confronted fourth official Lee Mason over a goal kick that was given to Swansea rather than a Chelsea corner.

The manager then watched the rest of the match from the dressing room as Chelsea won 1-0, and after the game apologised to both Mason and Swarbrick.

“I apologise for this. I was frustrated,” said Conte, who was dismissed for the first time in English football. “For sure I made a mistake. During the game I suffer. With my players I suffer. It’s a pity.”
