Pardew admits FA charge

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has pleaded guilty to a misconduct charge

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has admitted a Football Association misconduct charge.

The Magpies manager was charged after pushing assistant referee Peter Kirkup during Saturday's 2-1 Barclays Premier League victory over Tottenham. Pardew had until 4pm on Wednesday to respond to the FA.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of the Europa League play-off first leg clash with Atromitos in Greece, Pardew said: "We have to do the procedure that has to take place and we are following that through."

He added: "We are doing a letter on my call on what I thought happened at the weekend.

"But we have pleaded guilty and we will go to see the FA and see what punishment is going to come to fruition."
