Lee warned by FA

Liverpool assistant manager Sammy Lee has been warned about his future conduct at an FA Regulatory Commission hearings today. The Football Association issued improper conduct charges against Lee following a verbal altercation with fourth official Stuart Attwell. The incident happened in the dying moments of the Premiership defeat to Spurs after referee Phil Dowd waved away a series of Liverpool penalty claims.

The FA statement says: "Sammy Lee was warned as to his future conduct. Lee admitted a charge of improper conduct relating to his behaviour towards fourth official Stuart Attwell during Liverpool’s match against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on 16 August. In reaching its decision the Commission took into account Lee’s admission of the charge, his apology and his exemplary previous disciplinary record over many years."

The FA charged Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez with improper conduct yesterday, following the comments he made to the media after the same game.
