(Reuters) – Derby County manager Frank Lampard was fined 2,000 pounds by the English Football Association on Tuesday after admitting to a misconduct charge.
The former Chelsea midfielder was sent to the stands during his team’s 1-0 Championship defeat by Rotherham United on Saturday for leaving his technical area to argue with a match official.
“Derby County manager Frank Lampard has been fined 2,000 pounds after he admitted an FA misconduct charge and accepted the standard penalty,” the FA said in a statement.
The 40-year-old Lampard, who was capped 106 times by England, took his first managerial role in May and has guided Derby to seventh place in the Championship after seven matches.
