JUST IN: FA Confirms Fines To Manchester United.
BREAKING: FA Confirms Fines To Manchester United.
The FA confirmed on Wednesday that Manchester United had received two fines for actions during the games against Newcastle and Chelsea.
United were fined £82,000 (£45k + £37k) by the FA for failure to control players during games against Newcastle and Chelsea.
The breaches revolve around contentious incidents during their clashes with Newcastle United and Chelsea last month – both games ending in draws.
First, there was the encounter against the Magpies, where players surrounded the official after a heated exchange between Callum Wilson and defender Lisandro Martinez of the Red Devils.
The trick was subsequently duplicated by United in their dramatic 1-1 draw with Chelsea when the referee was once again encircled after he decided to give the hosts a penalty for a foul that Scott McTominay had accidentally given up.
