Cardiff City and Barnsley fined by FA after post-game brawl
The Football Association have handed out fines to Cardiff City and Barnsley after their encounter at the Oakwell Stadium on February 2nd.
Managers, staff and players all clashed after Cardiff beat Barnsley 1-0 as tensions rose post game.
Barnsley assistant boss Joseph Laumann confronted Cardiff manager Steve Morrison as they headed for the tunnels.
Morrison said he was simply celebrating with the fans, but Laumann soon rushed to challenge him.
Bluebirds players immediately leaped to their managers defence, causing a scuffle of players and staff from both teams.
The FA claimed “both clubs failed to ensure their players and/or club officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour.”
Barnsley were fined £12,000 for admitting the charges.
Cardiff were fined £10,000 but denied the charges.
