FA fines Manchester United £20,000 for players’ misconduct against Chelsea

The Football Association have fined Manchester United £20,000, for their player’s behaviour during their FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Chelsea on Monday.

Ander Herrera was sent off after picking two yellow cards in the first half and several of his United team-mates surrounded Michael Oliver after the red card was shown.

The Old Trafford club accepted the FA’s charge and will now pay the fine.

“Manchester United have been fined £20,000 after the club admitted an FA misconduct charge and accepted the standard penalty,” a statement on the FA’s website said.

“It relates to a breach of FA Rule E20 (a) for failing to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion in or around the 35th minute of their FA Cup quarter-final against Chelsea on Monday 13 March 2017.”
