Paul Ince given five-game ban for ‘violent conduct’

FIVE-MATCH BAN: Paul Ince in the stands at Bournemouth (PA)

PAUL INCE will have to manage Blackpool from the stands for five matches following a lengthy ban from the Football Association for “violent conduct”.

The Championship manager was found guilty of the charge after engaging with match officials at the end of his side’s league game against Bournemouth on September 14.

Ince was judged to have breached three rules and must pay £4,000 in addition to serving the touchline ban.

In a statement, the FA said: “Ince appeared before a Regulatory Commission on Monday after he was charged with three breaches of FA Rule E3, which occurred in or around the tunnel following the game.

“The charges were that Ince; used abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official; his behaviour towards a match official constituted violent conduct; and that he used threatening words and/or behaviour towards a match official.”

Ince was seen acting with a hot temper during the fixture at the south coast club’s ground – the former Manchester United defender had already been sent to the stands for throwing a bottle that inadvertently struck a female steward.
