Newcastle Coach Facing Lengthy Ban for Headbutt

MOST COMMENTED

Alan Pardew has been charged with improper conduct by the English FA and could be set for a lengthy ban after the Newcastle coach headbutted Hull City midfielder David Meyler during Newcastle’s 4-1 win at the KC Stadium on Saturday. Pardew was immediately sent to the stands following the incident, while Meyler received a yellow card. The 52-year-old has since apologized and will not face criminal charges, but Newcastle has already fined him 100,000 pounds ($167,000) and issued a formal warning. He has until March 6 to respond to the charge.

In an interview with BBC Sport, ex-Newcastle chairman Freddy Shepherd said he expects the FA to “make an example of Pardew.” He said: "It will be bigger than a 10-match ban, they [the FA] will really go to town. He is human and he lost the plot. The club have done the right thing in giving him a huge fine, a month's wages. He has apologized and he shouldn't have done it. It was ridiculous, but he will face the penalty and carry that around for the rest of his life. Twenty million people saw it and I have a feeling the FA will really make an example of him."

Pardew has been in charge of Newcastle since December 2010, winning 59 of 152 games in all competitions.
