Against Swansea, back in November, Antonio Conte was sent to the stands for the first time in English football.

His heinous crime was to merely dispute a decision made by the referee, Neil Swarbrick, which saw a goal-kick awarded as opposed to a corner.

Mind you, Antonio had also been giving the fourth official some serious verbal relating to Swansea`s time-wasting.

Having been sent to the stand, Antonio was gracious enough to apologise to the referee, admitting,

‘I made a mistake. With my players I suffer. It’s a pity.’

But that hasn`t stopped the 48-year-old from being fined by the Football Association.

Today it was announced that Conte must pay a fine of £8,000 for his misdemeanour.

Probably small change for the Italian but it`s still an inconvenience I`d imagine.
