Leeds manager Jesse Marsch has been fined and suspended by the Football Association for his actions during his team’s 5-2 defeat at Brentford earlier this month.
Marsch was sent off during the loss for expressing his frustration and anger after United was denied a penalty in the second half when they were trailing 3-1. Aaron Hickey collided with Crysencio Summerville, prompting the American coach to request that referee Robert Jones use the pitchside monitor.
After the international break, the 48-year-old will serve his suspension against Aston Villa at Elland Road on October 2.
The FA’s statement reads: “Leeds United FC’s Jesse Marsch has been fined £10,000 and suspended from the touchline for their next fixture following a breach of FA Rule E3 that happened at their match against Brentford FC in the Premier League on Saturday 3 September 2022.
“The manager admitted that his language and behaviour during the 64th minute of that game was improper.
“An independent Regulatory Commission subsequently imposed his sanctions.”
