FA fines Manchester City $150K for players' dissent on referee

FA fines Manchester City $150K for players dissent on referee

London: The Football Association (FA) fined English football club Manchester City 120,000 pounds ($150,000) on their players showing dissent towards the referee after the team had a 3-3 draw with Tottenham in a Premier League match this month, IANS reported.

In the dying moments of added time of the match, Haaland was brought down by a foul, yet miraculously managed to thread a pass that sent Grealish sprinting towards the goal. However, despite appearing to signal an advantage, referee Simon Hooper unexpectedly halted the play.

This decision triggered an outburst of fury from both the City players and their supporters, who believed that the opportunity for an advantage had been unfairly denied.

Then, several of City's stars, including Haaland, were enraged by Hooper's decision, surrounding the referee to vent their fury at him, with the Norwegian appearing to shout at the official.

"Manchester City FC have been fined £120,000 after their players surrounded a match official at the Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur FC on Sunday 3 December. Manchester City FC admitted that they failed to ensure their players did not behave in an improper way during the 94th minute. An independent Regulatory Commission imposed this sanction following a hearing," an FA statement read.

However, Haaland, who vented out his frustration at the decision to share multiple posts on social media, was not charged by the governing body.
