FA Fines Chelsea And City For Pitch Ruckus

Chelsea and Manchester City are slapped with a fine after the skirmish that took place in their highly contested match last 03 December 2016.

 

The Blues have to pay £100,000 whilst City is fined wiith £35,000.

 

According to the FA, the said sanction was issued because of the clubs’ inability to control their players.

 

“The two clubs were charged for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour,” the organization said in a statement.

 

It all started when the talismanic striker, Sergio Aguero was asked to leave the pitch after a nasty tackle against the defender, David Luiz.

 

Dissatisfied with the referee’s decision, a confrontation between Fernandinho and Ces Fabregas took place. The Brazil international grabbed Fabregas and gave him a not so friendly nudge.

 

Aside from the fine, the players involved are also served with a ban.
Aguero will not play in four matches.

 

This is not the first time that the Argentine scoring machine received a ban. It was his second this season and the first one took place when he elbowed West Ham United’s Winston Reid.

 

Due to the said incident, City’s head honcho, Pep Guardiola asked him not to participate in their training for a whole week. The ex-Bayern Munich manager believes that this well help him regain his energy.

 

In the meantime, Fernandinho will not play for three matches. However, there is a possibilitty that his sanction will be extended if the FA becomes too strict in their evaluation.

 

Guardiola has already apologized for the said incident.

 

‘It is a pity the game finished like this,” he said in an interview.

 

Both Aguero and Fernandinho will not play against Leicester, Watford and Arsenal. Sadly, Aguero will have to miss Hull too and will only play when they go against Manchester Citty on Boxiing Day.
