Pardew banned for 7 games for head-butting player

AP - Sports

LONDON (AP) -- Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has been given a seven-match ban by the English Football Association for head-butting an opposing player during a Premier League match.

The FA says Pardew will serve a three-match stadium ban and be suspended from standing on the touchline for the other four games.

The governing body also fined Pardew $100,000 and warned him about his future conduct.

Pardew already has been sanctioned by Newcastle, accepting a formal warning and a fine of $168,000, following his confrontation with Hull midfielder David Meyler on March 1.
