Lee Bowyer has been Charlton boss since March 2018, initially as caretaker manager

Charlton Athletic boss Lee Bowyer has been given a three-match touchline ban by the Football Association.

Bowyer, 42, admitted a charge of improper conduct and/or questioning the integrity of a match official in his side’s 2-1 home defeat by Swansea.

“I’m surprised and disappointed with the ban. I didn’t shout or swear in my discussion with the referee but it is what it is,” he told the club website.
