Amor must wait to learn A-League fate

Adelaide United coach Guillermo Amor must wait to learn whether he will cop more than the one-game A-League ban he has already served for his outburst during the Red's round-seven 3-1 loss to Perth.

After sitting in Sydney on Monday night, Football Federation Australia's independent disciplinary and ethics committee reserved its decision, which hinges on the force with which Amor touched fourth official Adam Fielding as he protested a controversial decision that resulted in the Glory's second goal.

Fielding alleges the mild-mannered Barcelona legend applied enough force to cause him to take a step forward, while Amor argues he was merely attempting to gain his attention so he could alert referee Jarred Gillett to his error in awarding Andy Keogh a game-changing goal after Glory captain Rostyn Griffiths seemingly fouled Reds skipper Eugene Galekovic.

Complicating matters is the lack of video evidence of the incident.

A decision is expected to be handed down in the next two days.
