Leeds United have been fined 40,000 pounds ($48,924) after Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe was pushed by a supporter who ran into the technical area during the Premier League game at Elland Road in May, the FA said on Monday.
The fan was sentenced to 12 weeks in prison and banned for life by Leeds following the incident in the 2-2 draw on May 13.
Leeds were also warned as to their future conduct, the FA added in a statement, with 20,000 pounds of the fine suspended until the end of the 2024-25 season.
“Leeds United admitted that they failed to ensure their spectators ... conduct themselves in an orderly fashion and don’t use words or behaviour which are improper, offensive, violent, threatening, abusive, insulting or provocative,” the FA said.
