Alan Pardew didn’t have much of a choice, as to what to do about the misconduct charge the FA issued to him last Monday, after he was seen to push the referee’s assistant after about an hour of the game against Tottenham last Saturday.
Alan Pardew – pleaded guilty
This is what Alan said about the charge last night:
“I’ve written a letter and pleaded guilty.” “I don’t want to harp on about it. I just want to focus on the game tomorrow night.” “We have to do the procedure that has to take place and we are following that through.”
“We are doing a letter on my call on what I thought happened at the weekend. But we have pleaded guilty and we will go to see the FA and see what punishment is going to come to fruition.”
Its likely now that Alan Pardew will either receive a two game or three game touchline ban from the FA, and the Newcastle United manager may also receive a fine, and the punishment will likely be announced today.
Alan’s right when he says he needs to get it behind him and concentrate on the important game in Athens tonight against Atromitos FC.
