The combustible manager was sent off during Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Swansea City at Stamford Bridge, and could face further discipline.

Here’s Conte, from the BBC:

“The problem is I was frustrated because the opponents were wasting time. I tried to tell this to the fourth official not only once but a few times. But I have apologised because I did the wrong thing. I have been in to see them after the game. It’s right to speak and apologise with them.

“I don’t know if it was fair [to be sent off] but we have to respect this decision. Sometimes there is a lot of frustration like in this case but sometime you can make a mistake and I did this.”
