After being sent to the stands during Bolton Wanderers’ 3-2 win against Sheffield Wednesday in the second round of the Carabao Cup, Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal has been handed a two match touchline ban with immediate effect. Wanderers manager Phil Parkinson was fined £2000 due to being sent to the stands.

The FA released the following statement:

“Carlos Carvalhal will serve a two-match touchline ban with immediate effect following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing on Thursday [7 September 2017].

The Sheffield Wednesday manager was charged for misconduct in relation to his behaviour in the 88th minute of the EFL Cup game against Bolton Wanderers on 22 August 2017. The charge was designated as a non-standard case as this was Mr Carvalhal’s second misconduct charge within 12 months.

Mr Carvalhal, who partially admitted the charge and requested a personal hearing, was also fined £4000. Bolton manager Phil Parkinson was fined £2000 after admitting misconduct during the same fixture and accepted the standard penalty.

Sheffield Wednesday’s Sports Scientist Andy Kalinins was also charged for misconduct following a 90th minute incident in the same game. He will serve an immediate two-match touchline ban after admitting the charge and was fined £3000.”

Both managers were sent to the stands after a rough challenge from former Wanderer Barry Bannan on Filipe Morais. Phil Parkinson left his technical area to complain, which led to Carvalhal reacting and both mangers being punished after an altercation.

Carvalhal subsequently got into a heated discussion with a steward when being taken to a seat behind the dugouts.
