The Spurs coach received a stage-one warning for misconduct during his side’s 3-1 defeat of Fulham last month
Mauricio Pochettino has become the first Premier League manager to be warned by the Football Association since the introduction of new rules governing behaviour on the touchline.
Pochettino, the Tottenham manager, received a stage-one warning for misconduct during last month’s 3-1 defeat of Fulham, report The Times, having been seen gesturing wildly at referee Anthony Taylor and his officials at the start of the half-time interval.
Pochettino appeared to take umbrage at Taylor’s refusal to award a penalty for a challenge on Harry Kane by Timothy Fosu-Mensah, the Fulham defender.
The official reasons for Pochettino’s warning have not been disclosed by the FA.
The 46-year-old former Southampton boss is the first top flight manager to be cautioned by the FA over his touchline behaviour, though Wolves fitness coach Antonio Dias has also been reprimanded for an incident that took place in the Molineux club’s draw with Everton on the opening matchday.
Swindon manager Phil Brown is the only coach to receive two warnings to date, with a further two set to result in a touchline ban.
