- German plays down confrontation with Antonio Conte
- Spurs manager: ‘Next time, we don’t shake hands’
Thomas Tuchel suggested it may be better if Anthony Taylor no longer referees Chelsea’s games but the German played down his row with Antonio Conte after the rival managers clashed moments after Harry Kane rescued a late point for Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.
Tempers were high during a passionate London derby, with Tuchel and Conte both facing touchline bans after being sent off after the final whistle. The two managers had both been booked after squaring up to each other in the wake of the first Spurs equaliser, which Chelsea argued should have been disallowed for a challenge by Rodrigo Bentancur on Kai Havertz and then for offside against Richarlison, and they had to be pulled apart again after full time.
