Stoke manager Tony Pulis has been fined £10,000 and warned as to his future conduct after comments he made in the wake of his side's Carling Cup defeat to Liverpool a month ago.
The Potters boss was initially charged by the Football Association earlier this month after they reviewed what he said in his post-match interviews following the 2-1 loss at the Britannia Stadium. Pulis denied the charge and requested a personal hearing but an independent Regulatory Commission has ruled his behaviour constituted improper conduct.
"Stoke City manager Tony Pulis has today been fined £10,000 by The FA and warned as to his future conduct after being charged in respect of media comments which were found by an independent Regulatory Commission to have constituted improper conduct," said a statement from the FA.
