Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti avoided suspension but was punished with a fine of 8,000 pounds ($ 10334) after he accepted the charge of misconduct from the Football Association after a tie with Manchester United in the Premier League last Sunday.

Ancelotti expressed his anger over the assistant video referee’s decision to cancel a late goal for his team that would have given him victory, and the Italian coach got a referee from referee Chris Kavnag to protest after the final whistle.

Dominique Calvert-Lewin hit a ball that changed direction and netted United in the last moments at Goodison Park Stadium, but the video ruling saw that teammate Guelphi Sigurdsson was involved in playing offside.

The FA said in a statement on Thursday: The Everton manager acknowledged that his tone and behavior on the field at the end of the match was not appropriate and was acceptable.

The decision means that Ancelotti will be able to sit on the bench during Everton’s visit to his former club Chelsea on Sunday.
