Why FA issued Pochettino with harsher punishment

Soccer News

Everton’s Marco Silva fined after Newcastle

Everton manager Marco Silva has been fined by the FA.

As confirmed on Tuesday, “Marco Silva has been fined £12,000 following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing”.

The Portuguese boss has been punished for his outburst after Everton’s recent 3-2 defeat at Newcastle.

After the match at St James’ Park, Silva raged at referee Lee Mason.

Everton’s manager was furious with the officials for a couple of major decisions in the game.

That included the failure of the officials to spot five offside Newcastle players in the build up to Ayoze Perez’s winner.

Tottenham vs Everton: Mauricio Pochettino’s harsher treatment explained

Prior to the FA’s announcement, there had been speculation that Everton’s Silva may be hit with a touchline ban.

That’s because Mauricio Pochettino has recently been slapped with a two match ban after he ranted at referee Mike Dean following a defeat at Burnley.

So why was Silva only fined, but Tottenham’s manager was banned?

The Times have looked into the differences in the two cases, and why the FA treated Spurs much harsher than Everton:

Pochettino had confronted the referee Mike Dean both on the pitch, and then in the tunnel, following a defeat by Burnley and that is why he was dealt with more harshly. 

Is that fair? Does that distinction make any sense?
