London - Sunderland
manager David Moyes will serve a one-match touchline ban when his
struggling side travel to Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday
after he admitted to a Football Association misconduct charge on
Moyes was ordered off the touchline during Wednesday's 1-0 League Cup fourth-round loss away to Southampton.
The former Everton and Manchester United manager was sent to the
stands after complaining about a decision by referee Chris Kavanagh not
to award a late penalty when Maya Yoshida appeared to trip Victor
Anichebe in the box.
Scottish boss Moyes said afterwards he had had been dismissed for swearing at fourth official James Adcock.
Moyes, whose side are bottom of the Premier League table and are
without a win in 10 games, chose not to appeal against the charge and
the ensuing punishment, with the ban accompanied by an £8 000 fine.
"David Moyes will serve an immediate one-match touchline ban after he
admitted using abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official
and accepted the standard penalty," said an FA statement.
"The incident happened in or around the 90th minute of Sunderland's EFL Cup fixture at Southampton on October 26, 2016.
"As well as the suspension, the standard penalty for this breach of FA Rule E3 also includes an £8 000 fine."
After Wednesday's match, Moyes said: "I was sent off for leaving my box and swearing at the fourth official.
"The problem was he chased me down the touchline. I swore at him and I shouldn't have done so I deserved to be sent off."
Moyes was adamant Sunderland should have had a penalty, adding: "When you see it again it's a stonewaller, no question.
"Inside the box Yoshida fouls Victor, he comes across him, and it should have been a definite penalty awarded."
