 Pochettino served with two game ban

Spur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been served with two games ban and a fine of 10,000 pounds ($13,000) by the English Football Association (FA) on Wednesday after accepting an improper conduct charge.

Mauricio Pochettino confronted referee Mike Dean last month when his team were thrashed to a 2-1 defeat at Burnley.

His action attracted The Football Association (FA) to issue him a ban and fine statement for his misconduct.

“The Tottenham manager accepted an improper conduct charge from the FA, which resulted from his language and/or behaviour – both on the pitch and in or around the tunnel area.”
