Latest Sports News: Derby County Manager fined by English FA for Misconduct
Former Chelsea Midfielder Frank Lampard has been fined £2,000 by the FA after admitting a charge of misconduct prior to his red card in Derby’s loss to Rotherham, latest sports news reports…..
The Rams manager, Frank Lampard was sent-off in the 77th-minute in their 1-0 loss at New York Stadium after leaving his technical area to complain about a decision.
Lampard accepted the charge, saying “it was the right thing to do”, and is free to take his place in the dugout for Tuesday’s Sky Bet Championship match against Blackburn.
“It’s a new rule this year, yellow and red cards,” Lampard said.
“My issue with it was that other managers and assistants are leaving areas all the time to talk to fourth officials and shout to the referee or linesman, and it’s not being dealt with.
“It’s new, consistency is a problem but that’s not my argument to fight, that’s for the FA to sort out and make the right decisions.
“The referee was very quick to get the red card out, make of that what you will.”
