LEEDS UNITED boss Jesse Marsch has been handed a touchline ban and fined by the FA.
The American, 48, has admitted to using inappropriate language during his side’s 5-2 defeat at Brentford.
He received a red card in the 64th minute of the Premier League clash in west London on September 3.

He received his marching orders after protesting violently with fourth officer Keith Stroud.
Now he has been suspended and fined for a game on the touchlines by the Football Association.

“The manager admitted his language and behavior were inappropriate in the 64th minute of that game.
“An independent regulatory commission then imposed his sanctions.”
Leeds were due to take on arch-rivals Manchester United this Sunday.

That means Marsch will now have to serve out his ban until after the international break.
Leeds are next in action when they take on Aston Villa at Elland Road on October 2.
