Moyes admits improper conduct charge
Everton manager David Moyes and his assistant Steve Round have admitted to improper conduct charges, the Football Association have confirmed.
Moyes and Round were hit with the charges for their behaviour towards referee Martin Atkinson at the full-time whistle in the Toffees' thrilling 3-3 draw with Manchester United on Saturday.
Everton had trailed 3-1 heading into injury time at Goodison Park but struck through Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta to level matters.
But the Blues management team were left furious when Atkinson blew his final whistle with Phil Jagielka closing in on goal in the dying seconds, with Moyes walking on to the pitch to speak to the official.
Moyes had indicated that he would plead guilty to the charge and he has received an £8,000 fine over the incident.
Round, meanwhile, has submitted a plea in mitigation against the fine, which will be heard by a Regulatory Commission hearing on Monday.
An FA statement read: "Everton manager David Moyes and assistant manager Steve Round have both admitted improper conduct charges.
"The charges related to Moyes' and Round's conduct towards referee Martin Atkinson on the pitch following the final whistle at Everton's match against Manchester United on 11 September.
"Moyes has accepted the £8,000 fine which is the standard sanction offered for this charge under the FA's new fast-track disciplinary procedures.
"Round has submitted a plea in mitigation with relation to the standard sanction. This will be heard by a Regulatory Commission on Monday 20 September."
