Premier League: Sheffield United coach receives hefty fine for criticizing referee

The coach of Sheffield United (English D1), Chris Wilder, was fined 11,500 pounds sterling (around 13,400 euros) for criticizing the refereeing and denouncing the “lack of respect” of an assistant who ate a sandwich during a tense post-match discussion.

The English manager was sanctioned for “inappropriate conduct” after his “media statements” following the 3-2 defeat against Crystal Palace on January 30, the English Federation (FA) announced on Tuesday.

“Every close or 50/50 decision goes against us, and if that's what we have to face between now and the end of the season, we're going to face it,” Wilder denounced afterwards. -match. “But I’m not going to just fly under the radar and say nothing. I went to the referee and told him.”

The 56-year-old technician, who arrived in December on the bench of the current bottom of the Premier League, especially attracted the attention of the media by denouncing the attitude of an assistant to referee Tony Harrington during the verbal exchange who followed the meeting.

“One of his assistants was eating a sandwich during this time, which from my point of view is a complete lack of respect. I hope he enjoyed his sandwich while he was talking to a Premier League manager,” he said.

The club, promoted last summer to the English elite, has recorded 18 defeats in 25 league matches this season. The “Blades” are last with thirteen points, seven points from the first non-relegation place.
