Mark Hughes Charged With Improper Conduct, Fined £8,000 By English FA

| |

Stoke manager Mark Hughes has been fined £8,000 by the Football Association after being sent off during his side’s loss at home to Tottenham.

Hughes was sent to the stand for reacting angrily during the 4-0 defeat on the 10 September, and later charged with improper conduct.

He later said he would not contest the charge as it would cost money he would prefer to give to his grandchildren.

The 52-year-old said the FA charge “rubbed salt into the wounds”.

The Welshman had reacted angrily after Stoke forward Marko Arnautovic was booked for diving.

The club, who are currently bottom of the Premier League, have said they want to speak to the FA about a “potentially inconsistent approach” from match officials following the charge against Hughes.
