Kompany Given Touchline Ban as O'Neil Charges by FA over ref rant

Burnley manager Vincent Kompany has been handed an immediate one-game touchline ban and a £10,000 fine following his red card against Chelsea last month.

The ex-Manchester City captain has been given a two-match touchline suspension, with the other match suspended until the end of the year, for his misconduct in the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.

Kompany was sent off by referee Darren England for protesting against a penalty decision that led to a red card for defender Lorenz Assignon.

Kompany will miss Saturday's home game against Brighton with Burnley second-bottom in the Premier League and six points from safety.

An FA statement read: "Burnley FC's Vincent Kompany has been fined £10,000 and suspended from the touchline for two matches following misconduct at their Premier League game against Chelsea FC on Saturday 30 March. One match is to be served immediately and one match suspended until 31 December 2024. 

"The manager admitted that his language and/or behaviour in the 40th minute of the fixture was improper and/or abusive and/or insulting towards a match official and/or questioned the integrity of a match official."
