“The Everton manager accepted an improper conduct charge from the FA, which resulted from his behaviour on the field of play at the end of the Premier League fixture against Newcastle United on March 9,” the Football Association said in a statement.
Silva was furious at Newcastle’s winning goal being allowed to stand despite what he saw as “ five Newcastle players in the same line in offside positions” and confronted referee Lee Mason on the pitch before angrily questioning the linesman who had not raised his flag.

After the match Marco Silva rushed into the officials, saying that for “the third goal it was a big mistake by the assistant, it was a clear offside …”
However, it was his move onto the pitch that brought about the charge by the English football’s governing body, and the fine by an independent regulatory commission.
Everton are 11th in the English Premier League table after responding to the Newcastle defeat by beating Chelsea 2 – 0 at the weekend.
