Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has admitted a Football Association charge of misconduct.
The Magpies boss was charged after pushing assistant referee Peter Kirkrup during his side's 2-1 win over Tottenham on Saturday. Pardew had until 4pm today to respond to the charge.
Speaking at a pre-match press conference in Greece ahead of Newcastle's Europa League clash with Atromitos, Pardew said: "We have to do the procedure that has to take place and we are following that through.
"We are doing a letter on my call on what I thought happened at the weekend.
"But we have pleaded guilty and we will go to see the FA and see what punishment is going to come to fruition."
