When the managers shook hands after the full-time whistle was blown, Tuchel held onto Conte’s hand. The managers exchanged words aggressively. The players and coaching staff rushed in and separated the heated managers.

Antonio Conte met his previous Chelsea captain, Cesar Azpilicueta, as he made his way down the tunnel. The former Chelsea manager and the Chelsea captain exchanged words heatedly but it was unclear what was being said.

In the post-match interview, Tuchel claimed that he thought a manager should look each other in the eyes during a handshake. He played down the situation, claiming that, “You have emotional coaches on the touchline and that’s it.”
