That Newcastle vs. Southampton game was wild last weekend… Apparently, too much so.
It was certainly one of the crazier endings to a Premier League game we’ve ever seen and there’s been repercussions as the FA have charged Southampton striker Daniel Osvaldo and Newcastle’s goalkeeping coach Andy Woodman.
Osvaldo has been charged with violent conduct for his actions in the 94th minute of the heated clash, while Woodman has been charged with improper conduct after he was sent to the stand for his part in the scuffle.
Both parties have until Monday December 23 to appeal against the charges brought against them.
The incident in question occurred at the very end of the 1-1 draw between Newcastle at Saints at St. James’ Park last Saturday, as the Magpies bench reacted angrily to a hefty challenge from Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin. Hearing from sources close to the incident, Osvaldo is alleged to have kick Woodman in the groin and a massive melee ensued as both managers, Alan Pardew and Mauricio Pochettino, tried to calm things down.
Relive the incident in the video above to see if you can work out what was going on.
Also, this all happened while the poor referee Mike Jones was hit in the face by Moussa Sissoko‘s fist by accident and had received treatment.
As we said, an eventful ending that could cost Osvaldo and Woodman at least a fine and probably a ban from Premier League duties.
