Maurizio Sarri apologised to Jose Mourinho for the behaviour of Marco Ianni, who will be asked to explain himself to the Chelsea boss.
Ianni’s over the top celebrations in front of United’s dugout as Chelsea grabbed as last-gasp equaliser, had a furious Mourinho leaping out of his seat and he was held back as he attempted to pursue Ianni down the Stamford Bridge tunnel.
Mourinho labelled the incident “bad education” on the part of Italian Ianni, who has apologised to the Portuguese.
Meanwhile, Sarri spoke to Ianni after the incident and revealed he will do so again today when he will ask him to explain his actions.
“After the match I spoke with Jose, and immediately I understood that we were wrong,” the 59-year-old said. “I have spoken with the member of my staff, and I again spoke with Mourinho to say sorry to him.
“I want to speak to (Ianni) again (before I decide if there will be further repercussions), but I have dealt with the situation immediately. I have to speak to him again because I want to be sure that he’s able to understand that it was a big mistake.
“I will speak to him again (on Sunday). Now the situation is between me and the staff, face to face.”
