Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has confirmed that he will not appeal his seven-match ban issued by the FA, according to Sky Sports.

During his side’s 4-1 win over Hull on March 1st, Pardew was involved in an incident with David Meyler in which he was judged to have headbutted the midfielder.

The 52-year-old was sent off and given a £100,000 fine by chairman Mike Ashley and charged with improper conduct by the Football Association.

After a personal hearing, Pardew was given a three-match stadium ban and a four-match touchline ban.

"It was an independent panel and it was a decision that I was going to accept. I had no intention to appeal the decision, whatever it was,” said Pardew.

"I should never have walked forward and got involved in that situation when [Meyler] pushed me."

The Magpies boss is the first Premier League manager to be given a full stadium ban, meaning he cannot even access the stadium on match day.

Talking about the incident, Pardew stated that he made a mistake and now he must pay for it.

"Men make mistakes - my mistake was in front of millions of people, and you have to pay a price," he said.

"It was a hefty price to pay. Mike acted swiftly, and I accepted that and we go forward."
