Leyton Orient owner Becchetti suspended six games for kicking coach

January 15, 2016 - 10:36 AM

LONDON - The Italian owner of English fourth-tier club Leyton Orient has received a six-game suspension for kicking the assistant manager.

The English Football Association found Francesco Becchetti guilty of violent conduct over the incident immediately after a match last month.

Becchetti admitted his conduct was improper but denied being violent toward coach Andy Hessenthaler on the field following a 2-2 tie against Portsmouth.

An independent FA regulatory commission hearing also decided to fine Becchetti 40,000 pounds (C$82,987).
