Man U coach, Erik ten Hag, faces possible suspension after third yellow card


Erik ten Hag risks facing a touchline suspension in Manchester United’s next match as he received his third yellow card of the season in his win against Luton.

This latest yellow card was added to those he received in previous meetings with Tottenham, Arsenal, and Hotspur earlier in the season.

Referee Graham Scott awarded him the card during the 1-0 win against Luton Town at Old Trafford on Saturday when Hag protested a throw-in decision.

As per Premier League rules, accumulating three yellow cards results in an automatic one-match ban.

If the ban was enforced, Hag would be prohibited from being on the sideline for Manchester United’s game against Everton on November 26 after the international break.

Yellow and red cards for managers were introduced to the Premier League in 2019.

Additionally, rules for occupants of the technical area outline potential suspensions, including two matches for accumulating eight yellow cards and three matches for reaching 12 yellow cards.

According to the rules, reaching 16 cautions would result in a misconduct charge for the occupant.
