Holloway says he received 2-match misconduct ban
Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway says he has received a
two-match touchline ban from the English Football Association after
confronting the match officials following his team’s Premier League
Holloway was unhappy that a penalty was awarded against his
newly-promoted side earlier this month, allowing Roberto Soldado to
give Tottenham a 1-0 win from the spot.
Holloway also remonstrated with referee Mark Clattenburg after
the match in behavior the FA said amounted to ”improper
The FA also said that Holloway questioned the integrity of the
referee and match officials with his post-match media comments.
Holloway disclosed on Sky Sports television on Saturday that he
had been banned for two matches for misconduct and received a fine
that ”cost more than my daughter’s wedding.”
The FA has not disclosed Holloway’s punishment because he still
has the right to appeal.
