The English Football Association FA has accused the two coaches Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte after their heated argument.

Chelsea's Tuchel and his Italian colleague from Tottenham Hotspur are accused of "inappropriate behavior" after the end of the game.

Both breached FA rule E3, an FA statement said on Monday.

Tuchel and Conte are expected to comment by Thursday.

After the 2: 2 (1: 0) in the heated London derby on Sunday, Tuchel not only criticized the red cards for him and Conte, with whom he clashed violently after the final whistle, as "another bad decision".

The former Bundesliga coach also railed against the interaction between referee Anthony Taylor and the video referee (VAR).

Sharp referee criticism probably still in the frame

"Since when can you pull players' hair," said the 48-year-old, referring to a scene between Spurs defender Cristian Romero and blues professional Marc Cucurella.

If the VAR doesn't intervene here, »we won't have to check anything in the future.

That's ridiculous," said the Chelsea coach.

It would be "perhaps better" if Taylor stopped directing a game of the blues.

"I can assure you that the whole cabin thinks so, every single person."

However, the English association does not seem to be taking action against these statements.

Previously, the English media had unanimously reported on Monday that the FA would also investigate the German coach because of his criticism of referee Taylor.
