The Football Association has announced that it has fined and suspended Leeds United FC’s Jesse Marsch due to his personal conduct earlier this month during the team’s 5-2 loss to Brentford. The 48-year-old is the team’s manager and will reportedly serve his suspension after October 2nd, which is after the international break in Leeds’ home game with Aston Villa.

The FA released a statement, saying that not only was Marsch suspended but he was also fined £10,000 ($11,422.45 U.S Dollars) for violating FA Rule E3.

“The manager admitted that his language and behaviour during the 64th minute of that game was improper,” the statement says. “An independent Regulatory Commission subsequently imposed his sanctions.”

During the loss against Brentford, Marsch was reportedly angry and frustrated after Leeds United was denied a second-half penalty.

Marsch was sent off during the loss for showing his frustration and anger after United was denied a second-half penalty when it was behind 3-1. Brentford’s Aaron Hickey was reportedly tangled up with Leeds midfielder Crysencio Summerville, and Marsch had insisted to referee Robert Jones that they use the pitchside monitor.

Pitchside monitors are often consulted when something happens in the field of play. They help the referee review what happened on the field before making any final decisions. They are widely used in the La Liga and Seria A leagues, but not as much in the English Premier League.

Marsch has also managed Montreal Impact, New York Red Bulls, Red Bull Salzburg and RB Leipzig throughout his coaching career. During his time as a player, Marsch played for  D.C. United, Chicago Fire and Chivas USA. Marsch won MLS Cup twice, as well as the Supporters’ Shield and the U.S. Open Cup as a member of D.C United.
