LONDON (Reuters) - Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been fined 8,000 pounds following his sending-off during a match against Swansea City last month, the Football Association said on Wednesday. Conte was dismissed just before halftime for disputing a decision by referee Neil Swarbrick in the Premier League game at Stamford Bridge, which his team won 1-0. The Italian subsequently apologised but told British media he had been frustrated with Swansea's time-wasting. The FA said in a statement that Conte had admitted the misconduct charge and accepted "the standard penalty" for the offence. Chelsea, who are third in the Premier League, visit West Ham United on Saturday. (Reporting by Neville Dalton, editing by Ed Osmond)
