Newcastle boss Pardew accepts punishment

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has again apologised for head-butting Hull City’s David Meyler, and has accepted the punishment he received for the offence on Tuesday, reports the Daily Express.

The clash between Pardew and Mayler took place on March 1 at the KC Stadium, with the Magpies boss shoving his head into the face of the Irishman. After the game, which Newcastle won 4-1, Pardew apologised for his actions, while he was fined £100,000 by his club.

However, that did not prevent the Premier League from imposing its first ever stadium ban since its inception in 1992. Pardew will now be banned from entering the stadium for each of Newcastle’s next three matches, beginning at Fulham on Saturday. When his stadium ban is complete, he will be forced to watch the following four games in the stands, meaning that he will not be able to return to the dugout until the final weeks of the season.

Upon hearing the verdict, Pardew said: “As I have made clear, I deeply regret the incident and again wholeheartedly apologise to all parties for my conduct, which I understand was not acceptable.

“I will accept the punishment handed down by the Football Association today. My focus now turns to preparing the team for this weekend’s game against Fulham and finishing the season as strongly as possible.”
