Two-match ban for Grant

04 April 2011 05:30
West Ham manager Avram Grant has been handed a two-match touchline ban and fined £6,000 for comments made about match official Mike Jones, the Football Association has confirmed. An Independent Regulatory Commission found the former Chelsea and Portsmouth boss guilty of improper conduct relating to comments made to the media in the aftermath of the Hammers' 2-1 FA Cup defeat to Stoke on March 13. Grant's ban will commence with immediate effect and means he will miss the vital Barclays Premier League clashes at Bolton this weekend and at home to Aston Villa the following week.
