Erik ten Hag banned for Manchester United’s next match after third yellow card of season

Erik ten Hag will be banned from the touchline for Manchester United’s next game after receiving a third yellow card of the season.

The Dutchman was booked by referee Graham Scott for complaining about the award of a throw-in during the 1-0 win over Luton Town at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.


That follows cautions in meetings with Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal earlier this season and by Premier League rules triggers a one-match ban.

He will now be prohibited from being on the touchline for United’s trip to Everton on November 26 following the international break.

Yellow and red cards for managers and technical area occupants were introduced to the top flight in 2019.

Rules for technical area occupants can also see a two-match suspension for eight yellow cards, and a three-match suspension for 12 yellow cards.

Should an occupant reach 16 cautions, then they will be given a misconduct charge.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was forced to watch his side’s 2-1 defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers in September from the stands after picking up three cautions himself.
