In a live interview with presenter Mark Chapman following his side's 1-0 defeat against MK Dons on February 25, Mitchell was cut off after using improper language on three occasions.

It was in response to a question concerning co-owner Maxim Demin's wife Irena's visit to the team dressing room at half-time in that match.

Mitchell attended FA headquarters for a personal hearing today morning where he admitted a charge of misconduct.

After giving an explanation, Mitchell was handed a fine of £1,500 and warned about his future conduct.

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
