In the 71st minute of the match, United’s players surrounded the referee Chris Kavanagh, protesting about a handball from Willian in the penalty area. As a result, Willian and Fulham boss Marco Silva were sent off The tension escalated further when Aleksandar Mitrovic later shoved Chris Kavanagh, which led to his expulsion and an eight-match ban.
Although Mitrovic and Silva later apologized to Kavanagh for the incident, Manchester United faced the ramifications. They accepted the charges two weeks ago, and the FA has now imposed a fine of £65,000 on the club after an independent Regulatory Commission’s hearing.
