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?
