The FA have today released this statement following the Owls’ Carabao Cup second round tie against Bolton Wanderers in August:
Carlos Carvalhal will serve a two-match touchline ban with immediate effect following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing on Thursday [7 September 2017].
The Sheffield Wednesday manager was charged for misconduct in relation to his behaviour in the 88th minute of the EFL Cup game against Bolton Wanderers on 22 August 2017. The charge was designated as a non-standard case as this was Mr Carvalhal’s second misconduct charge within 12 months.
Mr Carvalhal, who partially admitted the charge and requested a personal hearing, was also fined £4,000. Bolton manager Phil Parkinson was fined £2,000 after admitting misconduct during the same fixture and accepted the standard penalty.
Sheffield Wednesday’s Performance Director Andy Kalinins was also charged for misconduct following a 90th minute incident in the same game. He will serve an immediate two-match touchline ban after admitting the charge and was fined £3,000.
