"I will accept what is coming my way but there was a lot of stuff that was going on underhand that was wrong" says Paul
Paul Lambert has accepted a misconduct charge following his dismissal at Norwich last weekend but has sent a letter to the FA outlining the mitigating circumstances around his red card.
The Town boss was sent to the stands just before half-time at Carrow Road, along with a member of the Norwich coaching staff.
“I am not going to win an appeal so I won’t be going down that route but I have had my say to the FA,” Paul told the Club website.
“I stand by what I have said. I stand by exactly what went on. I will accept what is coming my way - whatever that is - but there was a lot of stuff that was going on underhand that was wrong and that’s what I have explained to the FA.”
In the official response to the charge, the Club have questioned the role of the stewards in the incident that led to Paul’s dismissal.
The Club have also pointed out that it took the coach taking the squad to Carrow Road from the hotel 28 minutes to do a 10 minute journey with a police escort.
