Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has pleaded guilty to a Football Association misconduct charge.
Pardew was charge for pushing assistant referee Peter Kirkup during Newcastle’s victory over Tottenham on Saturday.
The 51-year-old was sent off as a result and apologised for his actions after the match.
“We have to do the procedure that has to take place and we are following that through,” Pardew said at his pre-match press conference ahead of Newcastle’s Europa League play-off match with Atromitos on Thursday.
“We are doing a letter on my call on what I thought happened at the weekend.
“But we have pleaded guilty and we will go to see the FA and see what punishment is going to come to fruition.”
