Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly facing a touchline ban for his conduct in the immediate aftermath of Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Burnley in the Premier League.
Pochettino confronted referee Mike Dean after the clash at Turf Moor and according to The Mirror, the match official is expected to include the outburst in his report to the Football Association.
The report has claimed that the FA are ‘highly likely’ to charge Pochettino for his rant, which is expected to lead to a touchline ban.
Burnley’s opening goal came from a corner which replays showed should have been a goal kick, while Pochettino is believed to have been unhappy with a number of challenges from the home side.
The defeat, which was Tottenham’s seventh in the league this season, has left them in third spot in the table, five points off division leaders Manchester City.
