The FA have charged Chelsea assistant manager Marco Ianni for his misconduct against Manchester United on Saturday. Chelsea barely managed to avoid defeat against Manchester United on Saturday thanks to a late, late equaliser by Ross Barkley.
Following Barkley’s goal, Ianni celebrated in front of Jose Mourinho which clearly infuriated the Portuguese. Mourinho went to confront Ianni before personnel from both clubs intervened. The matter did not go much further.
However, FA have charged Ianni while issuing warnings to both Manchester United and Chelsea.
After the match, Mourinho said that Ianni apologised to him and he accepted the Italian’s apology.
Mourinho said, “I don’t think he deserves more than what he got. He apologised to me, I accept his apologies. I think he deserves a second chance. I don’t think he deserves to be sacked. I don’t think he deserves anything more than the fact his club was strong with him.”
As a result of the draw, Chelsea are currently 3rd in the table while Manchester United are 10th.
