Cheltenham boss Mark Yates accuses a fan of “fucking abusing” players in Plymouth loss

 Cheltenham boss Mark Yates accuses a fan of fucking abusing players in Plymouth lossCheltenham boss Mark Yates looks likely to land a fine from the FA after a fan caught the manager swearing at one of his club’s own supporters.

The Robins slumped to a 2-nil away defeat on Saturday at Plymouth to leave the club’s automatic promotion push teetering on the brink of collapse.

The pain of the defeat caused one Cheltenham fan to, apparently, yell obscenities towards some players. Sadly there is no video evidence of the abuse spouted from the fan.

What was filmed, however, was the aftermath.

After taking a dislike to the banter from the bleachers, Cheltenham gaffer Mark Yates stormed over to the abusing fan, singled him out, and he abused him back.

Yates: You! Don’t fucking abuse my players! Dont abuse my players!
