Mark Hughes fined £8,000 by English FA
Stoke manager Mark Hughes has been fined £8,000 by the Football Association after being sent off during his side’s loss at home to Tottenham. Hughes was sent to the stand for reacting angrily during the 4-0 defeat on 10 September, and later charged with improper conduct. He later said he would not contest the charge as it would cost money he would prefer to give to his grandchildren. The Welshman had reacted angrily after Stoke forward Marko Arnautovic was booked for diving.
