Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew was sent off for apparently headbutting Hull City’s David Meyler. The City player got ayellow card as well.

 

“It was just a heat of the moment thing. Obviously I massively regret it,” Pardew told Sky Sports.

“I think I am going to have to sit down from now on because that’s about two or three incidents I have been involved in on the line.

“I didn’t mean to do anything aggressive, but I did move my head forward and that’s enough.

“It was just because of the situation, if I was on the other side of the line, that wouldn’t have happened, perhaps it will teach me to sit down.

“It’s a shame, because it took the gloss off a fantastic performance from us. That’s really upsetting as well.”

Here are three GIFs of the incident from various angles:
