Spurs’ Argentine boss has been handed the sentence after accepting a charge of improper conduct for angrily confronting referee Mike Dean after a recent 2-1 defeat away at Burnley, with the FA also imposing a £10,000 fine for his actions.
The decision means Pochettino will be in the stands against his former club Southampton and away at Liverpool on 31 March, and to say he’s unhappy about it probably an understatement, as he explained as he met the media for his weekly press conference this afternoon:
Pochettino previously admitted after the incident that he’d crossed a line, and apologised to Dean for his actions, but does he deserve to be put in the stands for two games?
What do you think of his punishment, and how much could it affect Tottenham’s performances on the pitch?
