Chelsea news: Maurizio Sarri hit with misconduct charge for behaviour during Burnley draw

The FA said in a statement: “Maurizio Sarri has been charged with misconduct in relation to his behaviour in the 94th minute of Monday’s Premier League fixture between Chelsea and Burnley.

“The Chelsea manager has until 18:00 on Friday to provide a response.”

Reports have since emerged claiming Sarri was repeatedly called a ‘s*** Italian’ by members of Burnley’s backroom staff and Chelsea are believed to have lodged a formal complaint.
