Moyes fined $12,500 for ref attack

BY foxsports • September 16, 2010

Everton manager David Moyes has been fined for confronting referee Martin Atkinson at the end of his team's 3-3 draw with Manchester United in the Premier League last week.

Moyes and assistant Steve Round both admitted the Football Association's improper conduct charges.

The FA says Moyes has received the standard 8,000 pounds ($12,500) fine, but Round has submitted a plea in mitigation.

Moyes and Round were upset that Atkinson blew the final whistle just as Everton defender Phil Jagielka was about to shoot at goal.

Everton had scored two injury-time goals to draw level in Saturday's match, and Moyes felt not enough time had been added on.
