Following a charge that was issued to Chelsea assistant coach Marco Ianni, the English Football Association has handed him a fine of £6000 for admitting to be guilty of the charge.

FA had charged Ianni for misconduct where he clashed with his visitors’ manager in their Premier League clash against Manchester United at the Stamford Bridge in

Ianni was accused of running to the front of the United technical area to celebrate the last minute equalizer scored by Ross Barkley to upturn the visitor’s 2-1 win to a 2-2 draw.

In reaction to the goal, the Chelsea assistant became some emotional and lost it by going in front of manager Jose Mourinho to celebrate which angered the Portuguese manager to an extent that he had a faceoff before the situation was saved by manager Maurizio Sarri who apologised o behalf of his crew member.

However, the Blues boss and the embattled assistant are reported to have apologised to the Old Trafford boss with the apology already accepted.

The West London club were saved by the firing English player as they would have recorded their first defeat of the season in all competitions while United proved they are not finished yet with the comeback.
