5-match stadium ban for Blackpool manager Ince
LONDON (AP) — The English Football Association has given Blackpool manager Paul Ince a five-match stadium ban over his abusive and violent post-match behavior.
The former England midfielder had been sent to the stands late on in the Sept. 14 second-tier match at Bournemouth for throwing a bottle which struck a supporter.
The misconduct charges related to Ince’s behavior around the tunnel after the game.
The FA found Ince guilty of violent conduct toward a match official and said his behavior was threatening while using abusive or insulting language.
