Mauricio Pochettino hit with two-match touchline ban

Sport A- A A+

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has been handed a two-match touchline ban and fined £10,000 by the Football Association.

Pochettino has been punished for his improper conduct charge and will have to sit in the stands when Spurs return to his former club Southampton on Saturday as well as their trip to Anfield.

The Argentinian, whose side reached the Champions League quarter-finals with a 1-0 win at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, was sanctioned by the FA following his clash with referee Mike Dean after the 2-1 Premier League loss at Burnley.

Pochettino confronted the official about a decision that led to one of Burnley’s goals before getting even more irate after Dean appeared to make a comment.

A statement from the FA on Wednesday read: “Mauricio Pochettino has been fined £10,000 and will serve a two-match touchline ban following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing.

“The Tottenham Hotspur manager accepted an improper conduct charge from The FA, which resulted from his language and/or behavior – both on the pitch and in or around the tunnel area – at the end of the game against Burnley on 23 February.”
