Coleman fined over ref outburst
Chris Coleman
Fulham boss Coleman admitted the charge
The Football Association has fined Fulham manager Chris Coleman 2,500 and warned him about his future conduct.

The Cottagers boss admitted a charge of using abusive and/or insulting words towards an official.

The charge related to an incident during the 1-1 Premiership draw with Tottenham on 20 January.

Coleman was angry at the decision to allow Pascal Chimbonda's late equaliser to stand and remonstrated with officials after the final whistle.

Chimbonda scored after the ball fell to him following a free-kick.

Coleman felt Chimbonda had been offside but replays showed it was Fulham's Franck Queudrue who got the final touch to flick it into his path.

The Fulham boss later admitted the correct decision had been made but only after viewing several replays - and he suggested officials had got it right more by chance than good judgement.
