Wigan manager Martinez fined for referee criticism

  •  

LONDON (AP) -Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has been fined 10,000 pounds ($16,100) by the English Football Association for criticizing a referee after his team's loss to Manchester United.

The Spaniard was unhappy about a penalty being awarded to United, as well as Danny Welbeck avoiding a red card in Wigan's 4-0 loss in the Premier League on Sept. 15.

Martinez admitted an FA misconduct charge for implying "that the match referee and/or match officials in general are motivated by bias and/or brought the game into disrepute."

The FA warned Martinez about his future conduct.
