Sir Alex Ferguson will be in the dugout for Manchester United's Premier League clash with Everton on Saturday despite being hit with a two-match suspension, reports BBC Sport. United's boss was punished for comments on referee Alan Wiley's fitness after a 2-2 draw with Sunderland in October.
But the Football Association said that the ban does not start until 14 days after last week's disciplinary hearing.
Ferguson will sit in the stands at Portsmouth on 28 November and again for the Carling Cup tie with Tottenham.
The FA handed the 67-year-old a four-game ban, with two of those suspended until the end of the 2010/11 season, a £20,000 fine and warned him about his future conduct.
