Amor to face A-League music on Monday

Adelaide coach Guillermo Amor will find out whether he will cop more than a one-game ban when he faces an independent A-League committee on Monday.

Amor spent Saturday's scoreless draw with Sydney FC in the stands after being slapped with a mandatory suspension for touching a referee the previous week.

The incident was also referred to an independent disciplinary and ethics committee, who have the power to impose a longer suspension.

"The Match Review Panel regarded the incident constituting unsporting conduct towards a match official," an FFA statement read on Sunday.

The Spanish manager was banished from the sidelines for grabbing fourth official Adam Fielding's arm in the 68th minute in a loss to Perth in round seven.

There was no malice in the contact, however it was enough to convince then referee Jarred Gillett to give Amor his marching orders.

"When you don't speak good, some language, normally you use the hands, and the movement. And this is normal," Amor said after the Glory game.

"With the players sometimes it's the same. Normal action. I always respect the referees, his job. I know it's sometimes difficult, because deciding in one second."

Amor's winless Reds currently sit last on the A-League table.
