Jose Vieira: Jersey Portuguese manager given four-match ban

Wanderers v Portuguese
Wanderers were 3-1 ahead when the Portuguese players walked off in protest

Jersey Portuguese manager Jose Vieira has been handed a four-match "stadium ban" by the island's Football Association.

Vieira's side walked off in protest at conceding a controversial late goal in a match against Wanderers in November.

The Jersey FA charged the manager with misconduct soon after, and have now banned him.

The punishment is separate from the suspended sentence given to the club by the island's league in November.

Vieira will miss Portuguese's Willis Cup clash with Sporting Academics at Les Quennevais on Wednesday, as well as a Championship fixture against the same opponents the following Saturday.

His suspension will then mean he is absent from the touchline for the Touzel Cup quarter-final against St Lawrence and the league game at Grouville on Saturday, 27 February.

Portuguese Club have had disciplinary issues in the past, having been charged with misconduct and kicked out of the league in 2006 following a cup game against Jersey Wanderers, before successfully appealing to the Football Associationexternal-link in London.
