Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew handed £100,000 fine by club

Alan Pardew is handed a £100,000 fine following headbutt on David Meyler.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has been handed a £100,000 fine and accepted a formal warning from the club in relation to his behaviour in today's game against Hull City.

The 52-year-old headbutted David Meyler during the 4-1 victory for his side at the KC Stadium, an incident he later described as being a "heat of the moment thing".

However, in a statement Newcastle United said that it was "disappointed" with his actions and stated that his behaviour was not what they expect from the manager of their club.

It read: "It is most disappointing that this incident has taken the focus away from what was a fantastic performance by the team and an excellent result away from home which leaves the club in eighth place in the Barclays Premier League.

"Sadly, the headlines tomorrow will not be focused on the result or the efforts of the players, but instead on the actions of our manager.

"Alan unreservedly apologised immediately following the game to the player, to Hull City Football Club and its fans, and to the fans of Newcastle United."

The statement went on to say that the club was "drawing a line" under the matter and would not be commenting further.
