Pardew sorry for pushing official

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew apologised for pushing a linesman in the back after contesting a decision in their opening 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Saturday.

Pardew was sent to the St James' Park stands shortly after striker Demba Ba gave the hosts a 54th minute lead. A fine or touchline ban could now follow from the Football Association but Pardew was full of regret. “It was ridiculous really, I have to apologise publicly, I've been to see (the officials) already,” he said.

“I can only apologise. It was stupid. I don't know what I was thinking.”
