Everton Manager Carlo Ancelotti has escaped a touchline ban but has been fined £8,000 after accepting an FA charge of misconduct.

The Italian was involved with a spat with referee Chris Kavanagh after VAR ruled out an injury time winner from Calvert-Lewin against Manchester United at the weekend after it was controversially deemed Glyfi Sigurdsson was obstructing the view of keeper David De Gea.

The former Bayern boss will now be available to be in the dugout to face his former team Chelsea at the weekend; after accepting a charge that his language or behaviour amounted to improper conduct.

An FA statement read, “Carlo Ancelotti has been fined £8,000 for a breach of FA Rule E3 during the Premier League fixture against Manchester United FC on Sunday 1 March 2020.

“The Everton FC manager admitted that his language and/or behaviour on the field of play at the end of the fixture amounted to improper conduct and also accepted the standard penalty.”
