Tuchel to be investigated for comments on referee Anthony Taylor

Tuchel to be investigated for comments on referee Anthony Taylor

The German strategist lived through an intense game, in which he crossed paths with his Spurs counterpart, Antonio Conte, on a couple of occasions, to the point that they had to be separated in the midst of the tumult that was generated. This led to both technicians seeing the red card after the final whistle.

On the other hand, the former Dortmund and PSG was annoyed by the decisions made by the referee and that is why he may now be exposed to a sanction. What were the sayings for which he is being investigated?

The German suggested that Spurs’ first goal should have been disallowed due to Richarlison being offside, standing on goalkeeper Edouard Mendy’s line and blocking his vision, while his protest on the second pointed to an infringement on Marc Cucurella by the Argentine Cristian Romero.

“I can’t officiate, but the referee can officiate the next game? Good,” the Blues manager sarcastically said after the game.

In the preview, Chelsea fans had expressed their discontent with Taylor, but Tuchel went even further when asked about the fans’ concern, as he slipped that “the whole dressing room thinks the same”.

The FA investigation will focus on whether Tuchel has brought the game into disrepute by insinuating bias or attacking the integrity of a referee.
