Man United have been fined with £20,000 after accepting a charge for failing to control their players during the Liverpool derby, which ended in a 2-0 defeat for United.
Man United fined because of De Gea
Liverpool scored a goal in the 26th minute of the match after Virgil Van Dijk collided with United goalkeeper David De Gea. The goal was later disallowed by VAR, but it was the reaction of Man United players that got them into trouble.
David De Gea reacted quite spontaneously, rushing out to the referee and shouting at him, while other players like captain Harry Maguire, Andreas Perreira, and Fred were also vividly arguing with the referee. De Gea was given a yellow card for his protests.
“Manchester United FC has been fined £20,000 after admitting a breach of FA Rule E20 and accepting the standard penalty,” an FA statement read.
“The club failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 26th minute of a Premier League fixture against Liverpool FC on 19 January 2020.”
