GIF It: Newcastle manager Alan Pardew sent-off for headbutting Hull’s David Meyler
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew’s touchline behaviour has been getting increasingly erratic this season, and it has come to a head (quite literally) against Hull City today.
The Magpies boss was sent-off by referee Kevin Friend after this headbutt on Tigers midfielder David Meyler.
After the game, Pardew told the BBC: “It was just a heat of the moment thing – I massively regret it.
“I will have to sit down from now on because that is two or three incidents involved in.
“I didn’t mean to do anything aggressive or anything but I did put my head forward and that is enough I think. It will teach me to sit down.
“It took the gloss off a fantastic performance for us. We were terrific.”
Newcastle won the game 1-4.
