MK Dons manager lands himself in hot water with the FA.

Mk Dons manager Karl Robinson has been given a four game touchline ban after he fired a tirade of abuse towards Bradford City’s French defender Christopher Routis during the Dons league one clash with the Bantams in September.

The 34 year old has been found to have used foul and abusive language to the player, after the FA viewed the evidence on a number of occasions. Robinson will now be missing from the touchline for four of the MK Dons league one clashes as they continue to challenge for promotion. He has also been fined £3000 and ordered to attend an education programme provided by the FA.

The Dons manager said, “I accept the punishment and respect the commissions ruling, however I maintain that I didn't make any reference to the player’s nationality.”

Despite being hit with this lengthy ban, Robinson only seemed concerned on his team moving on in the league. He said, “My mind is fully focused on preparing the team for forthcoming games.”

The touchline ban will mean that Robinson will not appear in the dugout for the important games against Barnsley, Scunthorpe, Crewe and Bristol City.
