Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been given a two-match touchline ban and £10,000 fine by the Football Association, following his row with referee Mike Dean this month.

The 66-year-old was fuming that Dean did not send off Hull defender Michael Turner for a foul on Michael Carrick during United's 4-3 Premier League win at Old Trafford. Dean then awarded Hull a penalty for an innocuous Rio Ferdinand challenge.

Meanwhile, Everton manager David Moyes has been fined £5,000 by the FA after being found guilty of improper conduct towards referee Alan Wiley during Everton's 3-2 Barclays Premier League win at Stoke City in September.
