David Moyes fined £30,000 for ‘slap’ comment

Ex-Sunderland manager David Moyes was on Friday fined £30,000 ($38,000, 34,000 euros), for suggesting to a female reporter in March she might “get a slap”, England’s Football Association announced.

Moyes, 54, made the remark, for which he apologised, to BBC reporter Vicki Sparks following Sunderland’s 0-0 draw with Burnley in the Premier League on March 18.

The FA said Moyes’ remarks were “improper and/or threatening and/or brought the game into disrepute”.
