According to a story, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte had a full-time altercation over Conte’s behavior.
The tense head-to-head at full time that resulted in both managers receiving red cards was the largest of the numerous conflicts between Conte and Tuchel that occurred during Sunday’s 2-2 tie between Chelsea and Tottenham.
According to Bild, Conte’s continuous yelling of “f*** off” to Chelsea’s bench during the match may have been the catalyst for the altercation between the two managers after Tottenham’s first equalizer.
The first time Conte and Tuchel disagreed was when Tuchel thought Kai Havertz had been fouled in the lead-up to Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s equalizer in the 68th minute, which referee Anthony Taylor had let to stand.
When the German complained to the fourth official, Conte retaliated, and the two had to be separated before they were both given yellow cards.
When Reece James gave Chelsea the lead again, Tuchel rushed past Conte in delight. However, the worst altercation of all occurred when the managers shook hands at the end of the game.
While Conte resisted speaking about the situations after the game, Tuchel claimed that he was worried by the fact that Conte wouldn’t look him in the eyes.
However, after that night, the Spurs manager claimed on social media that Tuchel would have tripped him up if he had been sprinting past him following James’ score.
