April 4 (Bloomberg) -- West Ham manager Avram Grant got a two-match touchline ban and a 6,000-pound ($9,700) fine for his comments about match official Mike Jones during his team’s 2-1 F.A. Cup loss to Stoke last month.
Grant made the comments in a post-match interview March 13. The ban will take immediate effect, the Football Association said today on its website.
