Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew caused injury to Hull city’s David Meyler for which he was fined £ 100000, and also gave him a formal warning. Newcastle owner mike Ashley assessed his position as Pardew’s job has emerged to be under threat. However the association said that after issuing their punishment they have drawn a line under the affair.
After the attack which took place at KC stadium on Saturday Pardew was sent to the stands by referee Kevin Friend when football association Chairman Greg dyke whispered that the governing body analyzed the incident as serious.
Pardew is definite to be fined by the FA and subjected to a stadium ban for few months. The club in a statement said that Alan apologized instantly to the player to the hull city football club and to the fans of the United Castle. He deeply regrets his actions. Alan has accepted a formal warning and also has fine imposed on him.
The incident occurred in the middle through the second half of Newcastle’s win when the Hull player accidentally pushed Pardew to regain the ball that has gone out of play. At first Pardew pushed the player and then tilted over him and then a head to head contact was made between them. Alan Pardew apologized but he persisted that it was not a fully blooded butt or a dismissal offence. He uttered that from then onwards he would be sitting on the bench and will try to keep himself out of the way.
The hull manger Steve Bruce whispered that he has not seen or observed such a thing before. The matter is over as he had apologized to everyone. Pardew is very fortunate as he didn’t get one back from David Meyler who is 25 years old or else he must have fallen in great trouble.
