(Reuters) – Wolverhampton Wanderers’ manager Nuno Espirito Santo was fined 8,000 pounds ($10,400) by the English Football Association on Tuesday for celebrating on the pitch during his team’s Premier League home win over Leicester City on Saturday.

Nuno ran on to the field after Diogo Jota struck in stoppage time to earn a 4-3 victory at Molineux.

The FA said the 44-year-old Portuguese had admitted the misconduct charge and accepted the standard penalty.
