Going back, Conte had a number of complaints to referee Neil Swarbrick and confronted fourth official Lee Mason that sent to his first time dismissal in English football as he watched the rest of the match from the dressing room.
Meanwhile, the 48-year-old Italian manager apologized to Swarbrick and Mason for his unethical behavior at Stamford Bridge.
“I saw that the opponent was wasting time and that is the reason I spoke a few times with the fourth official. I didn’t see that the situation hadn’t changed and I was frustrated with the fourth official. For this reason, I have to apologize to him and the referee. In that moment, I was angry but I know that is it right to apologize to them.” Conte stated
