Van Egmond given 48 hours to please explain

Newcastle Jets coach Gary van Egmond has been given a 'please explain' by the FFA in regards to his outburst on Sunday in Perth. After the clash with Perth Glory that ended in a 2-2 draw after a late, controversial penalty to the home side, van Egmond stormed the pitch and remonstrated with Glory player Adrian Trinidad over the penalty incident.

The FFA believe van Egmond's actions 'constitute examples of bringing the game into disrepute' and he could be penalised if found guilty of a breach of the National Code of Conduct.

Yesterday, the FFA gave the Jets coach 48 hours to explain his rant.
