Lee Bowyer: Charlton Athletic manager banned for verbally abusing referee
Charlton manager Lee Bowyer has been banned from the touchline for three matches after being found guilty of verbally abusing a referee.
Bowyer, 42, was sent off by referee Chris Kavanagh for using "abusive and/or insulting language" in Saturday's League One game at AFC Wimbledon, which the Addicks won 2-1.
He was also found guilty of the same offence after he was sent off.
Bowyer will miss Charlton's games with Doncaster, Portsmouth and Burton.
A Football Association statement said Bowyer used "abusive and/or insulting language towards the match referee in both the 46th minute of the game and following his dismissal".
The former Leeds, Newcastle and England midfielder has also been fined £1,750.
