Roeder requests personal hearing
Michael Bailey Norwich City manager Glenn Roeder has requested a personal hearing with the Football Association to answer his second misconduct charge in a matter of months.
Norwich City manager Glenn Roeder has requested a personal hearing with the Football Association to answer his second misconduct charge in a matter of months.
The Canaries chief was banished to the stands for the second half of Norwich's 3-1 defeat at Derby at the end of October after confronting Lancashire official Neil Swarbrick during the interval at Pride Park.
Roeder was unhappy with the performance of one of Swarbrick's assistants during the Championship fixture, and has remained unrepentant since, but the City boss confirmed he will be heading down to Soho Square to give his side of events, before the FA decide what punishment to hand out.
You may also want to watch:
Roeder already has a suspended two-game touchline ban hanging over him following last season's trip to Bristol City in March, when he confronted referee Andy D'Urso after the final whistle because of a decision Roeder felt cost his side at least a point; a last minute winner had condemned Norwich to a 2-1 defeat.
If found guilty again, that ban will come into force and the FA could decide to add to it following events at Pride Park.
