Man United hit with £65,000 fine by FA over players' actions against Fulham

Manchester United have been fined by the FA.

Manchester United have been fined £65,000 following their players' actions during the FA Cup tie against Fulham last month.

The Red Devils beat Fulham 3-1 on March 19 to book their spot in the semi-finals of the competition.

But the game was marred by Aleksandar Mitrovic's extraordinary outburst towards match referee Chris Kavanagh. The Serbian forward pushed Kavanagh, resulting in a hefty eight-match ban.

Man United were charged for their part in the melee and have now been fined £65,000 following the behaviour of their players.

"Manchester United FC has been fined £65,000 after its players surrounded a match official during the 71st minute of their tie against Fulham FC in The FA Cup on Sunday 19 March 2023," the statement reads.

"The club admitted that it failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and do not behave in a way which is improper.

"Manchester United FC's fine was imposed by an independent Regulatory Commission following a subsequent hearing."
