The game between Chelsea and Manchester United ended in dramatic circumstances as a melee erupted after Ross Barkley’s late equalizer, as one of Maurizio Sarri’s coach Marco Ianni incensed Jose Mourinho when he celebrated in his face following the equaliser.

The Football Association (FA) confirmed last week that Ianni has been charged with improper conduct as a result of his behaviour during Saturday’s game and has until 18:00 BST on Thursday 25 October to respond to the charge.

And now, Ianni has been fined £6000 for his actions.

Ianni has now accepted the FA’s improper conduct charge and has been fined for his actions.

A statement from the FA said: “Chelsea coach Marco Ianni has been fined £6,000 after he admitted an FA improper conduct charge.

“It concerned his behaviour in the 96th minute of the game against Manchester United on 20 October 2018.”
