Premier League: Crystal Palace player fined by FA for abusive tweets

Crystal Palace winger Jason Puncheon has been fined £15,000 by the Football Association for Twitter comments he made in relation to former boss Neil Warnock.

Puncheon singled out Warnock for making comments about his penalty miss in a 2-0 defeat by Tottenham in January, with the former Palace boss saying Puncheon would not have been his choice of penalty taker. 

He said he would accept "banter" and "opinions" over his miss and wrote: "As a man I will live with that, which is fine, but I will not live with [Warnock's] opinion."

The FA stated that Puncheon had "failed to act in the best interests of the game and/or acted in a manner which was improper and/or used abusive and/or insulting words".

Incidentally, Puncheon played for Warnock on loan for four months from September 2011 when he was manager of QPR.

He said: "There's no way I would've trusted him with a penalty. You've got to have somebody a little bit more cool - and he's not like that, Jason."

"He can whack a 35-yard free-kick in here and there but a penalty, with all the pressure on him at a place like White Hart Lane... not in a million years for me."

Palace are currently in a relegation fight but made a lot of progress under new manager Tony Pulis.
