Former Chelsea and Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti was issued with a red card at the end of Everton’s game with Manchester United at Old Trafford last weekend as he remonstrated with referee Chris Kavanagh at the end of the game.

The Toffees had a goal controversially ruled out for offside after a VAR review, and the decision ensured Everton were denied a late winner against United.

Ancelotti has now accepted a Football Association charge of improper conduct and a fine of £8,000, but he will not be banned for the team’s weekend clash with former club Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Ancelotti decided against appealing the improper conduct charge he was hit with following the dismissal, and that means he will be on the sidelines for his return to Chelsea.

Ancelotti has turned around the fortunes of Everton and has had a strong start to life at the Merseyside club, as he has pushed the team out of a relegation battle into a fight for a European position.
