Two-match ban for Newcastle manager Alan Pardew
Tuesday 04 September 2012
The Newcastle manager Alan Pardew, has been given a two-match touchline ban and fined £20,000 after accepting an FA charge of improper conduct.
Pardew was sent off during his side's 2-1 win over Tottenham on 18 August for pushing linesman Peter Kirkup after claiming the ball had gone out of play during a Spurs attack. The suspension will take place with immediate effect, meaning he will have to sit in the stands during the forthcoming Premier League games against Everton and Norwich.
Meanwhile, the former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson has been named technical director at BEC Tero Sasana, who have twice been club champions of Thailand.
It is the 64-year-old Swede's first job since leaving Championship side Leicester City last October.
