English Premier League: Newcastle United, Norwich City fined for misconduct

London:

The English Football Association has fined Newcastle United and Norwich City for failing to control their players during a Premier League match.

The incident happened near the end of their ill-tempered 0-0 draw on Jan 28.

Newcastle striker Loic Remy and Norwich midfielder Bradley Johnson were each shown a red card by referee Chris Foy after pushing each other and then squaring up head-to-head on the touchline.

Newcastle accepted the FA misconduct charge and was fined 20,000 pounds (USD 32,700).

But the FA says Norwich denied the charge so was fined 30,000 pounds (USD 49,200) after being found guilty of misconduct.

The FA said Friday: "Both clubs were warned as to their future conduct."
