Dani Osvaldo suspended and fined Dani Osvaldo for a touchline melee at Newcastle

Southampton striker, Dani Osvaldo, has been fined £40,000 along with a three match suspension after being found guilty of violent conduct during the club’s 1-1 Premier League draw against Newcastle United on December 14.
The 27-year-old Italian player, who reacted angrily after Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin being shown a yellow card for a late tackle on Newcastle defender Massadio Haidara, was charged by the Football Association (FA).
However, Newcastle United coach, Andy Woodman, has also been fined £1,250 for his improper conduct in the touchline brawl.
That is why, Southampton striker will miss Saturday’s third round FA Cup clash against Burnley at St Mary's Stadium, and Premier League games at home to West Brom and away to Sunderland.
