The Football Association (FA) have charged Maurizio Sarri for misconduct after he was sent off in the Blues’ draw with Burnley at Stamford Bridge.
Sarri was dismissed in the 94th minute when the referee, Kevin Friend deemed the Chelsea coach’s reaction to a fracas between Sarri’s players and their Burnley counterparts were out of the line.
Maurizio Sarri did not conduct his post-match media duties; with his assistant, Gianfranco Zola claiming that Sarri was sent off due to a misunderstanding.
Former Chelsea player, Zola also stated that Sarri was offended by the comments made by members of Burnley’s coaching staff and was frustrated by the Clarets’ “time wasting attitude“.
It was later reported that the Chelsea manager had been the target of discrimination, with staff on the Burnley’s bench accused of calling Sarri a “s*** Italian”.
Also, SaveChelsea.net reported that Lorenzo Insigne could reunite with Sarri at Chelsea.
The Napoli winger will not relinquish the chance of playing under his former manager. So far this season, Insigne has netted a total of 13 goals and provided 7 assists for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
