Jay Rodriguez of Southampton (2L) celebrates with Pablo Daniel Osvaldo (2R)

Southampton striker Pablo Daniel Osvaldo has been banned for three matches and fined £40,000 following the charges against him for violent conduct during his team’s 1-1 draw against Newcastle United last month.

Triggered by a challenge from Morgan Schneiderlin on Massadio Haidara, Osvaldo got himself involved in a touchline brawl, one in which the substitutes and coaching staffs from either side also joined in during the St. James’s Park draw on 14 December.

A Tweet from BBC Sport read:

The tussle, which took place in the 94th minute of the game, also led to the sending off of the goalkeeping coaches from both sides- Newcastle’s Andy Woodman and Southampton’s Toni Jimenez- by the referee Mike Jones.

The Italian international joined Southampton in the 2013 summer transfer window on a four year deal worth €15.1 (£12.8) million fee plus bonuses up to €2 million.
