Slaven Bilic fined by FA for improper conduct in West Brom’s defeat at Everton.

The FA have fined West Bromwich Albion manager Slaven Bilic £8,000 after he admitted to a charge of improper conduct during Saturday’s 5-2 defeat at Goodison Park.

Bilic, 52, was shown a red card by referee Mike Dean for his complaints at half-time after defender Kieran Gibbs was sent off for pushing Everton’s James Rodriguez in the face.


‘Slaven Bilic has been fined £8,000 after admitting a charge for a breach of FA Rule E3 and accepting the standard penalty,’ the FA said in a statement.

‘The West Bromwich Albion manager’s behaviour on the field of play at half-time of the Premier League fixture against Everton on 19 September 2020 amounted to improper conduct.’

The Croatian was angered by the dismissal of experienced left-back Gibbs and went over to Dean as the officials were heading into the tunnel.

Check the foul, check the foul. And the red card,’ Bilic could be heard insisting on camera, with Dean replying ‘go away’ before giving the Croatian his marching orders.

Bilic’s side have now lost both of their opening league fixtures since returning to the Premier League and face Chelsea at The Hawthorns on Saturday.
