Maurizio Sarri: Chelsea boss fined £8,000 after accepting FA misconduct charge
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has been fined £8,000 after he accepted a Football Association misconduct charge for being sent to the stands at the end of Monday's 2-2 draw with Burnley.
The FA said on Thursday that Sarri, 60, had admitted the charge and “accepted the standard penalty”.
The Italian was dismissed by referee Kevin Friend in the 94th minute of the Premier League match.
Tensions had boiled over in the final stages of the game.
Chelsea's David Luiz and Burnley's Ashley Barnes were involved in an altercation on the pitch and a scuffle took place near the tunnel entrance at the final whistle.
Blues assistant coach Gianfranco Zola said Burnley's backroom staff had “offended” Sarri.
“I think there will be a follow-up on that. Maurizio felt very unhappy,” Zola said after the match.
“We understand it's a football game. You say words because of the adrenaline, but he wasn't particularly happy.”
Sarri did not take part in the post-match media conference and Zola said Chelsea were unhappy with Burnley's time-wasting during the game.
